Afghanistan aid: Donors pledge $16bn at Tokyo meeting

Donors at a conference on Afghanistan have pledged to give it $16bn (£10.3bn) in civilian aid over four years, in an attempt to safeguard its future after foreign forces leave in 2014.

The biggest donors, the US, Japan, Germany and the UK, led the way at the Tokyo meeting in offering funds.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan agreed to new conditions to deal with endemic corruption.

It comes as the Taliban denies it was behind the killing of an Afghan woman, after video footage of an execution emerged.
