Permalink More children killed in Afghanistan in 2013, UN says

The United Nations says the number of children killed and injured in the US-led war on Afghanistan increased by 34 percent in 2013. The UN Assistance Mission for Afghanistan (UNAMA) said in its annual report released on Saturday that 2,959 civilians were killed in Afghanistan last year — including 561 children and 235 women. UNAMA added that more than 5,600 others, including 1,195 children and 511 women, were also wounded in 2013. “It is the awful reality that most women and children were killed and injured in their daily lives — at home, on their way to school, working in the fields or traveling to a social event,” said Georgette Gagnon, director of human rights for the UN mission.
