Gunmen stormed the offices of Save the Children in Jalalabad on Wednesday, killing at least six people and wounding 27 in an attack claimed by Islamic State.The latest assault on a foreign charity in Afghanistan underlined the growing dangers for aid workers in the country, who have become casualties of an increase in militant violence in recent years.The attack began just after 9am when a suicide car bomb was detonated outside the offices. The attackers then used rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) to blast their way inside....At the weekend Taliban gunmen raided a luxury hotel in Kabul, killing at least 22 people, mostly foreigners.The UN’s mission in Afghanistan tweeted that it was looking into reports of Wednesday’s violence. “Attacks directed at civilians or aid organisations are clear violations of international humanitarian law and may amount to war crimes,” it said.The assault on Save the Children, which has operated in Afghanistan since 1976, follows an ambush of International Committee of the Red Cross workers last year. Six employees were killed in that attack, and the charity said in October it would “drastically” reduce its presence in the country.

I’m very depressed and just want to end it all.”“Sir, I must remind you the Quran says suicides will go to hell, not to paradise.”“Sigh, I’m still depressed.”“Unless...”“Unless what?”“Unless you suicide for Allah. I have an opening at the local charity center at noon, if you’re interested. Comes with a pass straight to Paradise!” “Sounds good! I’ll be there!”
