Astonishing headcam footage has been released showing the moment a 500lb bomb was apparently dropped on a unit of US soldiers fighting in Afghanistan by mistake.
The American troops were reportedly engaged in combat with Taliban forces in the Paktika province when a simultaneous airstrike was called.
However, the operation went dramatically wrong when the bomb was dropped on a US army infantry outpost in error, according to military website funker350.
