The airstrike however killed at least 40 worshipers and injured dozens other.

“We did not target any mosques,” U.S. Central Command spokesman Col. John J. Thomas said the day after the bombing. “What we did target was destroyed. There is a mosque within 50 feet of that building that is still standing.”

Contrary to the statement by the Central Command spokesman, the has said that no such evidence to support claims have been found.
