An average of 74 men, women and children were killed every day in Afghanistan throughout the month of August, the BBC has found.

The findings show unrelenting violence affects almost the entire country as US negotiations to withdraw after 18 years of war are in disarray.

We confirmed 611 security incidents in which 2,307 people died.

Both the Taliban and Afghan government have questioned the validity of the casualty figures identified by the BBC.

Most people killed were combatants – including more Taliban fighters than expected – but a fifth were civilians.

A further 1,948 people were injured.
