Afghans fear Trump's US-Taliban move means more civilians killed, 'Our only hope was peace'

KABUL, Afghanistan — President Donald Trump's announcement that U.S.-Taliban talks on ending the war in Afghanistan are "dead" is a deeply unfortunate wording for Afghan civilians who have been killed by the tens of thousands over almost 18 years.

Many fear the canceled talks will lead to more carnage as the U.S. and Taliban, as well as Afghan forces, step up offensives and people die in the crossfire.

As America on Wednesday mourns thousands of civilians killed in the 9/11 attacks, weary Afghans watch their own toll from the aftermath continue to rise.

The Afghans are remembering their dead — from this war and other before it — in Martyrs' Week that continues through Friday.

Fresh graves are being dug every day. All sides, the Taliban, U.S. and Afghan forces, are to blame.
