FILE - In this Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012 file photo, Afghans carry a wounded woman from the scene of an explosion in Herat, west of Kabul, Afghanistan. A U.N. report says 1,145 civilians were killed and 1,954 others injured during the first half of the year, 80 percent of them by militants. But like other aspects of this decade-long war, facts are often obscured by perception and propaganda. That has left both sides locked in a battle of words, crafted to win the Afghan public's support. (AP Photo/Hoshang Hashimi, File)
