Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

A Rough Week in Kabul

Sunday, August 19, 2007

Hey everyone.

I don't write these reports to worry people. It’s more that I want you to have the real information and not the sensationalised version that you maybe reading from the comfort of your armchair.

So to clarify:

Yesterday, a German woman was kidnapped while dining at a local restaurant in Western Kabul. I have spent many an afternoon cruising these hoods on my motorbike and never had any problems. We are all surprised that it has happened within Kabul. Reports are coming through that she has been rescued......

Earlier this week a British private security contractor was murdered while carrying $200,000

And also this week a convoy of German police was attacked by a suicide bomber and this incident resulted in the death of 3 Germans

And on a positive note, 2 Korean women were released last week, bring the total to 2 executed, 2 released and 19 still in captivity.

Just to let you know I'm currently outside of Kabul.
