Tucson police weigh in on the 'Yanny or Laurel' debate

"We apologize for the earlier tweet regarding the A-10. It has since been removed".

In the ongoing debate about an audio clip that's tearing the internet apart - do you hear "Yanny", or "Laurel?" - comedian Jimmy Kimmel told viewers on Wednesday that he "might owe Donald Trump an apology".

As battle rages near the important city of Farah in western Afghanistan, the USA military has released footage of drone strikes killing large numbers of Taliban fighters in support of Afghan army efforts to push the Islamist group from the city.

The initial tweet, which was apparently meant to be a joke about the viral trend, said the Taliban in Farah, Afghanistan would have much rather heard "Yanny" or "Laurel" than the sound of approaching A-10 Warthogs sent this week to repel the insurgents.

Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White was asked at a press briefing on Thursday whether she thought the tweet's tone was appropriate.

But the Air Force's post incorporating the pop-culture reference sparked criticism from those who said it was inappropriate to mention the meme in a tweet about the thwarted Taliban attack.

"Farah has not fallen", White said.

Today, in spite of vain Taliban attempts to challenge the Afghan government's control of the city, it remains under the control of Afghan forces, she added.

Abdul Basir Salangi, governor of Farah province, said at least 25 Afghan troops and five civilians were killed in the attack by the Taliban, which reached the city's center, The New York Times reported.

He said U.S. troops also arrived to advise Afghan commando units involved in the counterattack but did not participate in offensive operations.
