15. Children bear the cruel cost of endless war. When 10 children from the same family were attending school last year, they came across an unexploded mortar bomb - a common sight in Afghanistan, where war still rages between the Taliban and US-backed national forces. Not understanding what it was, or the dangers she presented, the curious children took the device to show their aunt. And then it exploded. Three children were killed and the other seven lost at least one limb each. It's just unexploded ordnance. There are thousands of civilians and children who have been killed or maimed in terrorist attacks by the Taliban and airstrikes by US or US national forces.
