CNN has reported *nine members of the same family,
including six children, were killed.

In a statement Sunday night, a spokesman for US Central Command, Navy Captain Bill Urban, said US officials were aware of the reports of civilian casualties

subsequent explosions resulting from the destruction of the vehicle, indicating a large amount of explosive material inside that may have caused additional casualties,” Urban said. (Extracted
