US Attack in Nangarhar Suggests A Shocking Disregard For Civilian Life: AI

The Amnesty International (AI) in reaction to the killing of civilians in a U.S. drone strike in Nangarhar province said, “the bombing suggests a shocking disregard for civilian life.”

“On yet another deadly day in Afghanistan, once again it is civilians who bear the brunt of the violence involving armed groups, the Afghan government and their backers in the US military”, the Amnesty International USA’s Security with Human Rights Director Daphne Eviatar said.

“That a US drone strike purportedly targeting IS militants could instead result in the deaths of scores of farmers is unacceptable and suggests a shocking disregard for civilian life.
