Reality of life in so-called "liberated" AfghanistanDownload our updates and news through RSS readers
Babies among 16 killed as gunmen attack maternity ward in Kabul May 12, 2020, Al-Jazeera: Gunmen stormed a maternity hospital in the western part of the Afghan capital Kabul, setting off an hours-long shootout with the police and killing 16 people, including two newborn babies, their mothers and an unspecified number of nurses. An image showed a woman who had been killed lying on the ground still holding tightly to her baby, who a nurse in the unit confirmed to Reuters news agency had survived and had been moved to an intensive care unit at another hospital.


Abdul Baari never returned, his mother: “Iranian border guards have no mercy” May 7, 2020, Etilaat Roz (Translated by RAWA): The sound of crying from a poor hut in the Tanke Maulawi area of Herat has not been silenced for several days. They lost their only breadwinner in an accident. Iranian border guards allegedly threw Afghan refugees into a river after torturing them. Abdul Baari was 19-years-old and gathered his courage to smuggle himself into Iran to find work. Little did he know that he was not to return and his trip would bring back his dead body for his loved ones and a world of grief for his mother.


“They Were Laughing”: Iranian Border Guards Accused Of Torturing, Drowning Afghan Migrants May 6, 2020, RFE/RL: To escape war and poverty, Shah Wali left his village in northwestern Afghanistan in search of a better life in neighboring Iran. As the 28-year-old set off on his journey, he was gripped by fear. Iranian border guards beat, shot at, and even killed Afghan migrants who illegally crossed the border. And even if he reached Iran, he would be subjected to the violence and injustice suffered by many members of Iran’s sizable Afghan community.


Husband, father, sex worker: As adults, Afghanistan’s “dancing boys” lead double lives May 4, 2020, Thomson Reuters Foundation: In conservative Afghanistan, former dancing boy Farhad leads a double life; married father-of-six by day, cross-dressing dancer and sex worker by night. The practice of “bacha bazi” - translated as “boy play” - involves boys dressing up and dancing at private parties, but it was outlawed in 2017 amid concerns it fostered sexual abuse and servitude of young boys by powerful, older men.


Civil war, poverty and now the virus: Afghanistan stands on the brink May 2, 2020, The Guardian: The main hospital in Zabul, southern Afghanistan, was abandoned after a Taliban attack last September destroyed most of the building and killed nearly 40 people. But when coronavirus slipped into the province this spring, desperate health authorities, casting around for ways to fight this new enemy, settled on its shattered remains.
