The U.S. government has offered to pay compensation to the relatives of 10 people who were killed in a botched U.S. drone attack in Kabul, Afghanistan.It will also help the victims' family members who wish to relocate to the United States.Seven children and an aid worker were among those killed in the strike in August, just days before the final U.S. troops withdrew from the country.The Pentagon had said earlier that the attack targeted an Islamic State suicide bomber who posed an imminent threat to foreign troops at Kabul airport.The drone strike was ordered three days after a suicide bomber at the airport gates killed 13 U.S. troops and scores of Afghan civilians who had crowded there desperate to secure seats on evacuation flights..The Pentagon later admitted its strike had been a 'tragic mistake'.Last month, U.S. General Frank McKenzie confirmed the victims had posed no threat to U.S. forces.The killing of civilians raises questions about the future of U.S. counter-terrorism strikes in Afghanistan.It also provides further fuel to critics of the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from the country.

China on Saturday launched a rocket carrying three astronauts to the core module of its future space station.The Shenzhou-13 spacecraft blasted off from the northwestern province of Gansu just after midnight local time.Around six hours later, the vessel successfully docked to the port of the space station.China hopes to complete construction of its own space station to rival that of the International Space Station by the end of next year.Shenzhou-13, which means “divine vessel” in Chinese, is the country’s second of four crewed missions needed for the project. Ahead of the launch, the three astronauts - two men and one woman - attended a sending off ceremony. Wang Yaping is the first female astronaut to visit the Chinese station after becoming China’s second woman in space in 2013.The crew will now spend the next six months living and working on the station’s largest module.It will be the longest duration in orbit for Chinese astronauts and during that time they will conduct tests of key technologies and robotics needed to assemble the space station. They will also verify onboard life support systems and conduct a host of scientific experiments.China has spent the last decade developing its own space technologies, as it is barred by U.S. law from working with NASA.With the International Space Station retiring in a few years, China’s space station is expected to become the only one in Earth’s orbit.
