In a Reuters story entitled Taliban in Kunduz Reportedly Agree to Surrender, I found a particularly moving quote…
- Many civilians have fled Kunduz, an ancient city guarding routes into the central Asian republic of Tajikistan to the north.
“We left because of the bombing,” one refugee, Abdullah, told Reuters.
“On the street next to ours, 14 members of the same family were killed when a bomb fell on their house. Only the father and a little daughter survived. So we decided to leave.”
Why wasn’t this man’s story on the evening news?
