“This Is an All Too Common Occurrence”.

Dead on arrival. 11:56am. 5 September 2022.

One of the casualties delivered to the Hospital in Kabul after the suicide bomb at the Russian Embassy.

Sadly the extent of his injuries meant he didn’t survive. His family later came to collect the body which had been washed and prepared in keeping with Muslim practice, before the funeral which is carried out within 24 hours.

The man standing above him is a local ambulance driver.

For everyone in the room except me – this is an all too common occurrence.
