Afghanistan: 16 years, thousands dead and no clear end in sight

(CNN)America's longest war continues to trudge on and the bodies continue to pile up. The summer of 2017 has been a bloody one in Afghanistan, with the death toll numbering in the hundreds. Suicide bombers have targeted funerals and banks. A massive blast in June killed at least 150 in the capital of Kabul. Another this month rocked a Shiite mosque. According to the United Nations, the number of civilians killed in a six-month period reached an eight year record high. More than 15 years after Operation Enduring Freedom began, the Taliban is again making major gains in Afghanistan -- and shows no signs of abating. The government there controls only 63.4% of the country, as of August last year.
