Hundreds of Afghan children killed by U.S in last 5 years

By AFP / 12 Feb 2013

A UN committee has expressed “alarm” over reports that hundreds of children have been killed by US military forces in Afghanistan in the past five years.

US forces in Afghanistan (USFOR-A), which leads the NATO fight against Taliban insurgents, dismissed the committee’s concerns as “categorically unfounded”.
