Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- The United States gave $860,000 to the families of people in Afghanistan killed or wounded in a shooting rampage that is being blamed on U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, two Afghan officials said Sunday.
The money includes $50,000 for each of 16 people who were killed, as well as $10,000 for each of six who was injured, the provincial council members said.
A U.S. official confirmed Sunday that a payment had been made on Saturday.
"I can't comment on the figure, but I can say that it reflects the devastating nature of the incident," said the official, who asked not to be named because of the sensitivity of the situation.
