The U.S. military on Friday rejected claims made by a United Nations committee that hundreds of children have been killed by U.S. attacks and airstrikes in Afghanistan in the past five years.
The Geneva-based U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child said the children's deaths were "due notably to reported lack of precautionary measures and indiscriminate use of force." It called on the U.S. to take "concrete and firm precautionary measures and prevent indiscriminate use of force" to ensure that no more civilians and children are killed.
