Hi there,

If you think Democracy Now!’s reporting is a critical line of defense against war, climate catastrophe and fascism, please make your donation of $10 or more right now. Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.

Suicide Bomb Attack on Kabul School Kills 19, Mostly Young Women 

HeadlineSep 30, 2022

In Afghanistan, at least 19 people were killed and more than two dozen others injured today as a suicide bomber targeted an education center in the capital Kabul. The blast struck a predominantly Shia Muslim neighborhood home to Kabul’s minority Hazara community. Most of the dead and wounded are female high school graduates who were studying for a university entrance exam. This follows twin bombings at schools in the same neighborhood earlier this year, and a 2021 blast that killed 85 people — most of them female students — while wounding 300 others.
