    Kabul, Jul 17 (AFP) Civilian deaths in Afghanistan hit a new high in the first half of 2017, with 1,662 killed and more than 3,500 injured, the United Nations said today.

    The majority of the victims were killed by anti- government forces -- including the Taliban and the Islamic State -- with around one in five of deaths happening in the capital Kabul, according to the report which has been produced by the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) bi- annually since 2009.
