Afghan president promises measures to avoid civilian deaths in war on militants

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Afghan President Ashraf Ghani promised on Friday to take steps to prevent civilian deaths in the war against militants, a day after at least 30 civilians were killed in a US drone strike in eastern Nangarhar province.

Ghani said the new measures to protect civilians were under way and that he had put in place several controls to prevent night raids and attacks that cause civilian deaths.

Ghani made the remarks at a rally in Jalalabad, capital of Nangarhar province.

Presidential elections are due on September 28 across Afghanistan.
