No celebrations as Afghanistan civilian casualties fall

The number of civilian casualties in Afghanistan has fallen for the first time in six years, a UN report says.

The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (Unama) documented 2,754 civilian deaths in 2012, a 12% drop, and 4,805 injuries, a slight rise.

But, as Karen Allen reports, there will be no celebrations among Afghans still caught up in war.
