Afghan govt offers 2009 AFP photo as 'evidence' of 2014 airstrike

File - In this file photograph taken on September 4, 2009, members of the community attend a funeral after a NATO airstrike which destroyed two fuel tankers hijacked by the Taliban in northern Kunduz. A photograph the Afghan government distributed to back up its claims about civilian casualties in a US airstrike on January 15, 2014 was actually a 2009 AFP photograph of a different funeral, a media investigation revealed on January 26.
