"Afghan government officials alleged Sunday that a U.S. military operation in the remote mountains of northeastern Afghanistan killed 65 innocent people, including 22 women and more than 30 children, the most serious civilian casualty allegation in months. ... American commanders went into crisis mode Sunday and launched an investigation into the incident to find out what happened and prevent the episode from damaging relations with the Afghan government."
