Latest news on death toll of the Kaaj education centre attack

A list seen by Zan Times shows that 55 people, including 51 girls, were killed while 124 were injured in the September 30 attack on the Kaaj education centre in Kabul. All were Hazaras.

The list, prepared by Kaaj education centre, was shared by a source close to the centre. Of the 51 females killed in the terrorist attack, most were aged 18 to 22 years old, though the youngest was a 14-year-old girl named Nasrin Gholami.

Females also made up most of the wounded, accounting for 80 of the 124 injured in the attack. Most of the females were between 17 and 23 years old.

The list is not final because the condition of some of the wounded is still critical, the source tells Zan Times. “Some of these wounded have been taken abroad by their families for treatment, while others are under care in Kabul hospitals or at home due to financial difficulties,” he adds.

In response to the attack on the Kaaj education centre in the western area of Kabul, a wave of protests against the systematic killing of Hazaras has been launched in the streets and on social networks. The hashtag #StopHazaraGenocide has been tweeted 10 million times on Twitter alone.
