Unknown gunmen has claimed 16 lives in Kabul including babies and pregnant women.
The gunmen reportedly stormed a maternity hospital in the western part of the Afghan capital Kabul, setting off an hours-long shoot-out with the police and killing 16 people, including two newborn babies, their mothers and an unspecified number of nurses.
Photos from the Ministry of Interior Affairs showed two young children lying dead inside the hospital.
An image showed a woman who had been killed lying on the ground still holding tightly to her baby, who a nurse in the unit confirmed to Reuters news agency had survived and had been moved to an intensive care unit at another hospital.
Such a barbaric act in Kabul. What kind of men would attack a maternity ward. These Taliban are beyond redemption. The world needs to understand that as long as Pakistan is allowed to sponsor these terrorist groups, Afghanistan will continue to bleed. #kabulattack pic.twitter.com/NlnmkOOfek

Just can’t imagine the pain she’s enduring.
One day old child welcomed with bullets—totally heart wrenching.
“Prayers” to this little warrior, hope she survives the amputation.
I hope Jihad is done and served on this day.
