In news from Afghanistan, civilian casualties have reached a new high. The United Nations reports a record 4,300 civilians were injured or killed in Afghanistan between July and September. These are the highest figures since the U.N. began counting in 2009. This comes as the U.S. is intensifying its air war. Last month, U.S. Air Force aircraft dropped 948 missiles and bombs, more than in any month in five years.
