Who are responsible for this?

It's very heartbreaking and horrible 😰😢😭 50 school kids died and many more were injured. US imperialism didn't bring security and peace in Afghanistan for 20 years, but insured their interests there very well.

50 girls.Going home.

Sigh May 9, 2021 - 6:29 AM

It seems odd that the Taliban, or whoever, would do this at this time. They know the U.S. is planning on leaving in a matter of months, so why give them a reason to stay in Afghanistan? Especially, since this reason(women being oppressed) has been a popular talking point on all the news outlets. It's almost like someone wants American troops to stay in Afghanistan.

Inexcusable. What cowards.

J. Ho May 9, 2021 - 6:40 AM

All these young girls' lives snuffed out to satisfy evil male insecurity. These poor souls only seek education to better themselves and those around them. May their souls rest in peace.

Heart breaking 😢

Tay W. May 9, 2021 - 7:02 AM

In 🇦🇫, ppl are dying just because theyre girls. Things like this is why i get so angry when kids are suicidal just bc their life isn't social enough. How selfish. PEOPLE ARE DYING. Others would be grateful just to tobe left alone, safe…u want ur life perfect or u think its not worth living it.

Richard Johnson May 9, 2021 - 7:05 AM

This could be the direction the united states are heading towards. These people are just like the people that stormed the capital building. The belief that their way is the only way and violence and anarchy is the key to making things happen. The victims and the rest of the people are held hostage because like we in the states, let them get away with it like we let criminal police get away with murder.

America are responsible for these, America is the one who started the war, what unaccountable country, the rest of the world be careful with America

Why the correspondence had the creepy “ smile” at 1:18 when he talked there is a body part inside the bag? Feeling so sad for the girls.

This is so Heartbreaking. My Deepest Condolences to the girls who were killed families and friends.

The Taliban have 85,000 fighters spread across 60 percent of the country. While I served there one captured insurgent told me "I use to be an Afghan soldier, but Afghan soldiers molest children routinely and the Americans do nothing about it." The Taliban condemned the attack, probably because the girls are from a minority ethnic group, so the attack was probably just as much about tribalism as it was about girls education. I served 2 tours in Afghanistan, we have to stop playing policeman between rival gangs in a meaningless war.

Islam is a racist religion.

karmakazi219 May 9, 2021 - 8:01 AM

This is exactly what was predicted with the removal of US troops. Don't worry. Once ISIS gets going again, the troops will be back.

Taliban hates education. As soon as the Americans pull out, they will declare war on the civilians.

Bombing a girls school. These terrorists are the enemy of all humanity.

jihad rafia May 9, 2021 - 8:13 AM

May Allah bliss their souls and may they find their peace in paradise. And mAy Allah help and heal the wounded girls and punish the criminals. This is completely disgusting, those terrorists need to be exterminated.
