(Reuters) – The Taliban on Wednesday denied shooting and killing civilians during an offensive against Afghan government troops, and called for an independent investigation, seeking to reassure Afghans that “no home or family will face any threat from our side.”

Islamic militants issued a statement after the United Nations (UN) said more than 1,000 civilians were killed last month and the International Committee of the Red Cross said as of Aug. 1, 4,042 injured civilians had been treated in 15 health facilities.
