Afghanistan: Aid for victims of rocket attack on Kabul

16-12-1998 News Release 98/50

After several rockets fell on a densely populated residential area of Kabul on 13 December, the ICRC took 10 wounded people to the ICRC-supported Wazir Akbar Khan hospital. Many others were treated at other health-care facilities. While some of the injured were fit to be discharged later the same day, those more seriously injured remain in hospital.

The attack was the most severe to hit Kabul since 21 September, when two rockets killed around 100 people.
