    The number of Afghan civilian deaths has jumped by nearly a quarter in the first six months of 2013, according to a new UN report.

    A total of 1,300 people have lost their lives in the 12-year-old conflict since the beginning of the year.

    The number of children killed has risen 30 percent compared with last year, as insurgents step up their attacks with home-made devices.
