In Afghanistan, an airstrike killed at least eight civilians, including a child, in the eastern province of Nangarhar, according to local reports. The latest civilian deaths came as the U.S. declared a seven-day partial truce with the Taliban and President Trump said there was a “good chance” of reaching an agreement with the Taliban to reduce the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan. At the Munich Security Conference this weekend, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said a peace deal could come within days.
