Women, Children Among Those Wounded in Kabul Blast

A Taliban suicide bomber on Monday detonated an explosive laden vehicle in the western part of capital Kabul killing at least 36 civilians and wounding over 40 others including women and children.
 
Monday’s bombing marks one of the worst attacks in the nation’s capital in recent weeks.
 
According to health officials, the majority of those wounded in the blast were transferred to Estiqlal hospital while 14 injured civilians were transferred to Maula Ali and five others to Ibn-e-Sina hospital.
 
“My brother has been martyred in today’s suicide attack,” said an eye witness.
 
“We were inside the university, the incident happened 80 or 100 meters away from the university near the residence of Ustad Mohaqiq,” said a wounded Afghan Norullah.
 
“There was a terrible situation, everyone was running and everyone was thinking about themselves and were running around,” said another wounded person Najibullah.
 
“I was unconscious for three minutes after the blast happened, I was not aware of anything, when I awoke I saw the car was burning,” said an employee of the ministry of mines and petroleum.
 
Afghans are now fed up with the killings.
 
“Many people were wounded due to breaking glass, but these are not among those seriously wounded,” said Mohammad Sabir Naseem, head of Estiqlal hospital in Kabul.
 
“This is the first time I saw one of my loved ones dying, but my countrymen see this situation everyday by losing their loved ones, enough is enough, we demand the national unity government end this situation,” said eye witness Habibullah Rasuli.
 
“If you (government leaders) can't do it, then step down, it is enough now, we are tired of these cowards,” said another eye witness Amir Elham.
