A study published by the Open Society Foundations shows that Afghans blame US for civilian casualties. The report also calls for the Afghan government to set up an independent organization to maintain a national registry of civilian victims that would list cause of death and who is responsible and urges the international community to extend recent troop directives to reduce the potential for civilian casualties.

SAN’A, Yemen – Thousands have fled a village in southern Yemen where security forces are laying siege to al-Qaeda extremists, a security official said Monday, signaling an escalation in the government’s U.S.-backed campaign to uproot the terror network’s local offshoot. Government forces have moved into the village of Hawta with tanks and armored vehicles, and 90 percent of its residents have fled, said Abdullah Baouda, police chief for the surrounding district.
