ghazni - The 7-year-old Afghan Murtaza Ahmadi, together with his family, fled the Taliban. He went viral online last year after meeting his great hero Lionel Messi.
The Muslim extremists now threaten to cut the boy into pieces. Ahmadi belongs to the Shiite minority that the Taliban hunt for. The boy had to flee from violence before and even under these circumstances he managed to capture the hearts of many through the photo on which he poses with a shopping bag in the colors of Argentina on which he had written the name Messi and his back number.
