In Afghanistan, more than 250,000 Afghans have fled their villages during the past two years of fighting. This according to a new report from Refugees International. The group’s report criticized U.S. military efforts, saying, "The increasing use of air strikes by the International Security Assistance Force and the Afghan national security forces as well as night raids by U.S. Special Forces is destroying homes, crops and basic infrastructure, traumatizing civilians and displacing tens of thousands of people." Refugees International says the number of people fleeing their homes in Afghanistan has more than doubled over the past year.
