The outgoing head of the International Red Cross mission in Afghanistan told reporters Monday that civilians are in greater danger with less hope for peace than when he took up his post seven years ago.

"As the armed conflict in Afghanistan rages on, life for ordinary Afghans has taken a turn for the worse," said Reto Stocker as he prepared to leave the job he has held since 2005. He said the proliferation of armed groups in the country has continued to make it difficult for the Red Cross to operate and for civilians to seek medical attention when they are caught up in the violence.
