The United States has decided that no servicemen will face disciplinary charges over their involvement in a NATO airstrike in November that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers, the New York Times said on Sunday.

“We found nothing criminally negligent on the part of any individual in our investigations of the incident,” the paper quoted as saying an unnamed senior U.S. military official involved in the process. The source spoke on the condition of anonymity because the results of the review had not been made public.

The incident has heightened already tense relations between Pakistan and the US and NATO and has greatly complicated the allied mission in Afghanistan.
