A few days ago I read a very disturbing article about the Taliban’s recruitment of people with disabilities. After yesterday’s suicide bombing in Kabul, I thought I would share it. The image that haunts me is of a man with obvious mental disabilities who had been recruited by the Taliban to be a suicide bomber. He showed the reporter where he would collect his payment after the bombing. He did not understand that he would die, too.
I cannot find that exact article, but here is one that explains the Taliban’s recruitment of people with disabilities.
