Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Afghans hold funeral for victims of Kabul school bomb blasts” – below is their description.
Dozens of young girls have been buried at a desolate hilltop cemetery in Kabul, a day after a secondary school was targeted in the bloodiest attack in Afghanistan in more than a year.
The attack happened in Dasht-e-Barchi, a west Kabul suburb populated mostly by Hazara Shia, just as pupils were leaving at the end of the day.
Witnesses said it appeared well-coordinated and intended to kill as many children as possible.
Al Jazeera’s Filio Kontrafouri has more from the Afghan capital, Kabul.
