The United Nations says the number of civilian deaths and injuries in Afghanistan rose by 22% in 2014.

A total of 3,699 Afghans killed and 6,849 injured made 2014 the deadliest year since the UN began keeping records in 2009.

For the first time more people were killed in battles between the Taliban and government forces than by roadside bombs, the figures show.

The UN figures also show the highest recorded losses for the Afghan army and police with nearly 5,000 killed in 2014.
