UN: More Than 10,000 Civilians Killed or Wounded in Afghanistan in 2017

The United Nations says more than 10,000 civilians were killed or wounded in Afghanistan last year, many of them as a result of suicide bombings and attacks. The U.N. report says the number of casualties dropped by 9 percent compared with 2016, but it could increase again this year as the government and international forces step up aerial attacks against insurgents. VOA's Zlatica Hoke has more.
