Attacks on Afghanistan and the Aftermath of September 11

Human Rights Watch continues its intensive efforts to ensure that the world's responses to the September 11 crimes against humanity do not themselves run afoul of international human rights standards. This was a key message in a November 1 statement that Human Rights Watch issued along with 48 human rights, humanitarian, religious, and cultural groups.
