Two children, unceremoniously dumped in the middle of nowhere.
GHAZNI: A 12-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy have been killed in an acid attack in Afghanistan, an official said on Saturday, with witnesses claiming it was because of their friendship in what is an ultra-conservative country.
The bodies were discovered on Friday in wasteland in the Esfandi area of Ghazni province in south central Afghanistan, provincial police chief Zorawar Zahid told AFP.
“Their bodies and faces were burnt by acid,” he said.
The police chief said officers were investigating the motive for the attack, but witnesses who found the bodies told AFP the two were probably killed because of their friendship.
No one has claimed the bodies, which are still in Ghazni hospital, police said.
What kind of parents would do this to their own children?
