Afghanistan arms fuel further abuse

The US and other NATO states are supplying arms to Afghanistan that could be used for serious human rights violations, warns Amnesty International. At this week's NATO Summit in Bucharest (2-4 April), the organization is expressing its concern about excessive quantities of small arms, light weapons and munitions being supplied by member states of NATO and allied states to local Afghan security forces and police. There is a substantial risk that such equipment will be used for serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law.
