Leaks reveal 'friendly fire' deaths

Wikileaks revelations blow lid off Afghan incident in which US bombing killed Canadian soldiers.


    As the US government assesses the impact of the Wikileaks revelations on military operations in Afghanistan, the posting of the material online has unveiled another previously unknown incident.

    The documents suggest that four Canadian soldiers who died in 2006 were actually killed when a US jet dropped a bomb on a building they were occupying.
