Spare a thought for Kabul students

As students in the United Kingdom wake up to their GCSE grades this morning spare a thought for their counterparts at Kabul’s American University who have been caught up in an overnight gun-battle between insurgents and the security forces.

Following a suicide car bombing at the university’s entrance, Canada’s CBC News reports that at least 12 have been killed and dozens wounded as the gun battle raged around the sprawling campus.

SPIN ZHIRA: Old Man in Helmand is the unauthorised, unvarnished and irreverent story of one man’s midlife crisis on the front line of the most dangerous district in Afghanistan where the locals haven’t forgiven the British for the occupation of 1842 or for the Russian Invasion of 1979. Of course, all infidels look the same so you can’t really tell them apart.
