After the attack that killed more than 50 people in the Afghan capital Kabul, several hundred people gathered at the scene on Sunday. At first it was not clear what caused the explosion. The victims are said to be civilians. Photo: Veronika Eschbacher / dpa
It was the first time that the young student from Afghanistan’s capital Kabul had to wash corpses. All other women in the mosque in the west of the city fainted after the attack, reports Hasiba. And the dead girls would have had so many wounds. And just didn’t stop bleeding.
The Muslim girls whose bodies the student ritually cleaned were victims of the first major attack in Afghanistan since the international troops began to withdraw in early May. On Saturday afternoon, within a few minutes, a car bomb and two mines detonated near a large school in the west of the city – just as classes were over and hundreds of children were pouring out of the school.
