Human error was blamed on Saturday for a missile and rocket attack by US forces on vehicles in war-torn Afghanistan that resulted in the death of 23 civilians, a military statement said.

McChrystal has made it a tenet of his counter-insurgency strategy in fighting the Taliban that civilian casualties be kept to a minimum.

It’s a long time since I studied maths, but wouldn’t a minimum be zero?
