Rise in attacks on Kabul after years of city’s relative security a huge threat to the government, economy and civil society
For years the Afghan capital was an island of relative security in a country battered by a rising tide of violence. The devastating bombing this Wednesday morning was confirmation that it has now become one of the most dangerous places in Afghanistan, and is another heavy blow to a weak and fractured government.
The rising tempo of attacks in Kabul pose an outsize threat to the government, the fragile economy, to the foreign support that keeps Afghanistan running, to education, media and civil society, that all cluster in the capital.
Today’s attack was on Kabul’s working people, the telecoms, the banks, private companies, embassies. All working to make Afg a better place
