Civilians flee Marjah fighting

Warnings humanitarian crisis in Marjah grow amid Nato offensive against Taliban.

    More than a week into the Nato-Afghan military offensive against the Taliban in the southern Helmand province town of Marjah, warnings of a humanitarian crisis are growing.

    Members of a fleeing family tell Al Jazeera they fled the fighting because they could stop neither the Taliban nor US soldiers from entering their homes.
