Afghanistan sees most civilians hurt in years


KABUL, Afghanistan – Civilian injuries in Afghanistan’s long war with the Taliban rose last year, with women and children again bearing the brunt of the violence, the United Nations said in a report Sunday.

A total of 3,545 civilians were killed in 2015 as a result of the war, the U.N. report said, with another 7,457 wounded.

The figures mark a 4 percent drop in civilian deaths, but a 9 percent rise in civilian injuries, compared to 2014.
