Mazar-i-Sharif attack proves no Afghan city is safe | Asia | DW.COM | 11.11.2016:
The Taliban said in a statement Friday that their attack was a response to this month's US airstrikes in the volatile province of Kunduz that left 32 civilians dead. They claimed that Germany's security forces played a role in the raid. Ironically, the Islamists' own attack in Mazar-i-Sharif killed many civilians.
"We heard a loud explosion around 11 PM after which the lights went off," recalled Mohsen, who was injured in the Mazar-i-Sharif assault. "The broken glass from the window injured my head and I lost consciousness. I don't remember what happened afterwards," he said.
