Nato investigators have been hearing new details of an airstrike in Kunduz, Afghanistan last year, which killed up to 142 people, mainly civilians.

US forces launched the strike on fuel tankers hijacked by the Taliban, following advice from German ground forces. Now a Nato report says the Germans witheld vital information from the pilots of the US jets before they dropped their bombs.

Al Jazeera went back to the scene of the attack to find villagers still traumatised, as David Chater reports.
