He pointed to a crater and said, “my son was sitting there, eating something, and the bomb that got him landed (t)here…it exploded when it hit, and the metal went inside him.” The boy, Zumarai, 5, lay in the Kunduz hospital with wounds to his leg and abdomen. His sister, Sharpari, 10, was killed.” Mr. Muhibullah said, “the United States killed my daughter and injured my son…six of my cows were destroyed and all of my wheat and rice was burned…I am very angry. I miss my daughter.”
