#AFG Most of the victims were from some of the most impoverished&remote communities in Daykundi, Ghor, Bamian& Wardak . They came to Kabul to study and look for a brighter future. Victims of today’s attack very young, 18, 20 and 25 years old. Dreams shattered. Futures ruined. pic.twitter.com/XThh4n7B3A— BILAL SARWARY (@bsarwary) October 24, 2020
