Two air strikes kill 14 Afghan civilians

Two air strikes have killed 14 civilians in Afghanistan in recent days, the United Nations said yesterday, as the US intensifies its air war across the country. According to the UN Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), five women and seven children were among the 14 civilians killed in Helmand province in the south on May 20, and Kunar province in the east on May 22. “Civilian casualty toll from airstrikes in #Afghanistan continues to rise,” UNAMA said on Twitter. “Parties must respect international obligations to protect civilians from harm.”
