Kabul car bombing: 69 injured hospitalised at the EMERGENCY Surgery Hospital.
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 embassy area.
The EMERGENCY Hospital, a few hundred yards away, has accommodated 69 wounded, 8 dead on arrival. The A&E ward is still full of patients. The hospital also suffered some damage, but our staff are fine and they are 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.
