Kill people? Who, us?

Kudos to a Daily Kos diarist for catching this one. A recent AP article claims "A recent U.N. report said at least 1,013 [Afghan] civilians were killed in the first six months of this year from insurgents bombs." But the actual U.N. report says "595 (59%) of these deaths were caused by AGEs ["anti-government elements" - gotta' love the terminology] and 310 (30.5%) by international and national Afghan forces (PGF). The remaining 108 (10.5%) could not be attributed to any of the parties to the conflict.
