UN: US and Allies killed more civilians than Taliban in Afghanistan in the first half of 2019

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) on Tuesday said that in the first half of 2019, American and allied forces killed more civilians than the Taliban and other militant groups.

In 2001, the United States led an international mission to expel the Taliban after militants refused to hand over al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, who claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks. Since then, international forces have maintained a military presence in the country to increase support for the government.
