The Taliban says at least 200 villagers were killed Wednesday in U-S airstrikes on a remote village, east of the Afghan capital.
It's their largest casualty claim, to date.
American officials say they're not targeting civilians, and the village is in an area where Osama bin Laden is believed to have been training terrorists.
