They Threw a Rock at It, for Fun.
Saturday, October 2, 2021
Nadir, 12, and his cousin Hassan, 10, were walking back to their house when a small metal object caught their attention. They threw a rock at it, for fun. It was a landmine. The explosion left Nadir with a deep wound in his right leg.
Nadir and Hassan live in a small village bordering Pakistan. There is lots of unexploded ordnance here, left after decades of conflict.
We have been treating Nadir in the paediatric ward at our Kabul Surgical Centre for several weeks.
