|Afghan civilian dead|
When other lives are taken, these individualists just shrug in silence; or worse, they deliberately refuse to make themselves aware of suffering, often suffering inflicted by their compatriots.
Editing, brief comment by
My wife, our four children, my brother’s wife and her two children were waiting at the district administration centre to receive our Tazkeera (national ID). I asked my family to remain near the gate and so that I could go inside to check if the Statistic Department staff had arrived to work.
I heard a loud explosion and I ran back to the gate. I saw people lying in blood on the ground.
I saw one of my daughters dead on the ground and my other three daughters and their mother wounded. The police helped me put my daughters and wife in a vehicle and transferred them to the hospital.
Survivor of June 15 complex attack at Spozhmai Hotel, Qargha Lake, Kabul, Afghanistan
I was with my uncle in the yard of the Spozhmai hotel. It was around 11p.m. He asked me to get the camera from the vehicle to record our social activities.
I went to the car; it was then when I heard the shooting. I saw a gunman firing randomly at people and saw him firing at a group of young men – they were singing, enjoying their music. Some of them were not killed instantly; the wounded were crying for help and the gunman came back and shot them, targeting their heads.
He killed them all.
I also saw how they killed my uncle; they shot him in his head. His brain had come out. You know, he had just arrived from Iran to visit his elderly mum.
They killed him. They just went around the hotel yard and inside the building to search for people to kill.

“… U.S. policies justified in the name of fighting terrorism – aside from being rather terroristic themselves – are precisely those that fuel the anti-American hatred that causes those attacks.”
