At least three people were killed in explosions of bombs dumped on the roadside in Afghanistan. A video of children crying for their injured mother at the scene of the attack now causes great horror.
In Afghanistan, a video of crying and bleeding children at an attack in Kabul on Sunday caused horror. According to police, at least two people were killed and five others were injured in the attack, which was apparently directed against Afghan security forces.
The video, which was recorded immediately after the attack, shows corpses lying on the street and two small children, crying over an unconscious woman.
The man filming the scene tells the children to calm down as the woman is carried away.
The politician Fausia Kufi, who is involved in the government’s peace negotiations with the radical Islamic Taliban, asked how the attackers could reconcile the images of the children crying for their mother with their conscience. “This has to stop!” She demanded.
The Taliban, who regularly attack Afghan security forces, rejected any responsibility.
Despite the peace negotiations between the government and the Taliban, the attacks in Afghanistan had recently increased again. In the past few weeks there have been repeated attacks, especially in Kabul. Politicians, journalists and human rights activists were increasingly targeted by extremists.
The Taliban denied the allegations. Some of the attacks were claimed by the Islamic State (IS) jihadist militia.
