Afghanistan: Car Bomb Attack Update

Kabul car bombing latest: 76 inpatients, 40 outpatients, 11 dead at the EMERGENCY Surgical Centre.

This morning, at 8:30 am, Kabul was hit by yet another attack. A car bomb explosion, at a time when the streets were very crowded, has caused tens of deaths and hundreds of wounded in the Wazir Akbar Khan district, the diplomatic area.

The EMERGENCY Hospital, a few hundred yards away, received many patients

The hospital also suffered some damage, but our staff are fine and working tirelessly to assist the injured.

“We’ve been here offering surgical assistance to victims of war for 16 years. 16 years: yet this war does not only give no sign of ending, but it’s becoming increasingly violent, even in the capital” says Dejan Panic, Coordinator of the hospital.


Update: Damage from the blast to our hospital can be seen here:
