In Afghanistan, more civilians died last year amid the ongoing war than at any time since the United Nations began keeping records in 2009. At least 11,418 civilians died in 2016. Another 660,000 Afghans fled their homes—the highest number of displacements on record. This comes as the White House is considering a plan to deploy an additional 5,000 troops to Afghanistan.
