The Pentagon has offered unspecified condolence payments to the family of 10 civilians who were killed in a botched U.S. drone attack in Afghanistan in August during the final days before American troops withdrew from the country.

The U.S. Defense Department said it made a commitment that included offering “ex-gratia condolence payments,” in addition to working with the U.S. State Department in support of the family members who were interested in relocation to the United States.
