Afghan civilians still targets

The number of Afghans being killed has fallen in 2012 compared to last year, the UN says this is still too many.

    As the exit date for Western combat forces nears, their challenge will be to keep up the training of Afghan fighters amid a climate of growing suspicion.

    It is not just the security forces who are being targeted. Civilians are also being attacked.
