FILE -- In this May 31, 2017 file photo, an injured man is seen after an explosion in Kabul, Afghanistan. A U.N. report released Monday, July 17, 2017, said Afghanistan's protracted war killed a record number of civilians during the first six months of this year, blaming the majority of the deaths on bombings by insurgents. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein says the "horrifying" figure of 1,662 people killed between January and June of this year "can never fully convey the sheer human suffering of the people of Afghanistan."
