The United Kingdom acted in an opportunistic manner in the deal struck between the United States and Australia which ended a $40 billion submarine contract deal between Canberra and Paris, a French diplomatic source said on Friday. "The UK accompanied this operation opportunistically," the French diplomatic source said. France has not mentioned Britain in any official communication regarding the deal, focusing its ire on Australia and in particular the United States.
The U.S. Department of Defense said Friday that it killed 10 people, including seven children, in a drone strike that wrongly targeted an aid group worker in Afghanistan late last month.

Two porcupines were recovering at a wildlife shelter after sustaining burn injuries from the Caldor Fire that forced evacuations in South Lake Tahoe, California, footage from Thursday, September 16, shows.The fire had burned 218,857 acres (about 342 square miles) and was 71 percent contained as of Friday, according to Cal Fire.This footage filmed by Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care shows two porcupines receiving treatment at their facility.The first clip shows a rescued porcupine being carried to the checkup table. The second and third clips show her being examined.The shelter said in a caption that the animal “had her tilapia skin-grafting procedure done today!” All four of her paws were burned, the shelter said, “the back being severely worse than the front. Her tail quills had been burned off, and the rest of her hair had been singed. This tells us that she was not engulfed in flames like the other porcupine but walked on hot coals.”The fourth clip shows the other porcupine that was rescued snacking in his enclosure. The last clip shows him heading into his den to sleep.“He was rescued a few days ago,” the shelter wrote in another caption. "He rolled up into a ball before being engulfed in flames during the wildfire. His paws were unharmed, but all his hair and quills were burned off, as well as his eyes and nose being burned shut.“We are thrilled with his progress and can’t wait to see how he progresses the next few days,” Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care said.

During a Pentagon briefing on Friday, Gen. Kenneth McKenzie said an investigation had found that 10 civilians, including seven children, died in a U.S. drone strike in Kabul on Aug. 29.

Senior U.S. officers had said the Aug. 29 strike that took place as foreign forces completed the last stages of their withdrawal from Afghanistan targeted an Islamic States suicide bomber who posed an imminent threat to the Kabul airport."At the time of the strike, I was confident that the strike had averted an imminent threat to our forces at the airport," U.S. General Frank McKenzie, the head of U.S. Central Command, told reporters. "Our investigation now concludes that the strike was a tragic mistake."He said he now believed it unlikely that those who died were Islamic State militants or posed a direct threat to U.S. forces. The Pentagon was considering reparations for the civilians killed, McKenzie said.Reports had emerged almost immediately that the drone strike had killed civilians including children. A spokesman for Afghanistan's new Taliban rulers, Zabihullah Mujahid, had said at the time that strike had killed seven people.
