The hazards of wild game hunting in Afghanistan...

"Did Airstrike Kill Taliban Mastermind or Civilians?"

"Kabul, Afghanistan --- Afghanistan's intelligence agency said on Wednesday that the mastermind of a bloody attack on the agency's base this week had been killed in an airstrike, but residents and local officials in the area said the airstrike had in fact targeted a group of hunters on a hilltop."

quote: The New York Times INTERNATIONAL Thursday, January 24, 2019 - by FAHIM ABED and FATIMA FAIZI

Has anybody hunted wild game populations in Afghanistan, and what type of wild critters roam the land?

Thanks...

Erno

Sounds like no on really knows what happened.
That, or all parties are confused and/or lying...
