More than a thousand civilians have been killed in the war in Afghanistan this year alone, an Afghan rights group has reported.

The Afghanistan Rights Monitor said recent statistics show more than 1,000 civilians were killed in the first six months of 2010, with over half of them dying in suicide attacks and roadside bombings.

Among those killed and injured were children.

As Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports, the war's escalation has taken a huge toll on the Afghan people and its children in particular.
