BAGHDAD — The Iraqi government said Saturday that a U.S. airstrike killed 10 Iraqi soldiers, a misfire that has led the United States to launch its first investigation into a so-called friendly fire incident in Iraq since it began bombing Islamic State targets last year.
Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter said an American aircraft appeared to have conducted the strike Friday south of the city of Fallujah, about 40 miles west of Baghdad.
