kunduz - A gruesome new tactic. Taliban fighters hid a bomb in the clothes and cloths wrapped around a four-month-old baby. The goal was an explosion in a strategic place in Kunduz, with the girl as 'additional damage'.
This is how Nieuwsblad reports. Under the cloths, which were draped around the child's body, the explosives were carefully hidden. Four men and one woman carried the child with them and hoped to bypass the police of the city. Police officers, however, realized that something was not right and arrested the party.
After the explosives were discovered, the mine ministry managed to make all harmless, without harming the child.
'Using children in armed conflict is the most horrifying thing you can do. Such acts are not approved by anyone. Not by society, not by Sharia and not by the laws of our country. 'Said Sowita Abulrahizai, the president of the Independent Human Rights Organization in Afghanistan.
