Red Cross in Afghanistan: wheelchair-driver shoots physiotherapist

Friday, September 15th, 2017 | World News

An employee of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Afghanistan, who is from Spain, was shot in the northern provincial capital Masar-i-Sharif. The physically handicapped perpetrator had entered the orthopedic center and opened the fire, according to a police officer.

A total of two 21 and 30-year-old suspects were arrested. Both had been treated in the center. The physiotherapist (38) died shortly after the attack on her injuries. The perpetrator had hidden the gun on his bicycle.

The Red Cross in Afghanistan confirmed the incident on Twitter. A spokesman said the "entire ICRK family" was destroyed because of the tragic loss. His organization assumes that this is an individual case.

About six months ago, six Afghan Red Cross employees had been murdered in Afghanistan. Two of her colleagues had been abducted and released only last week. Afghan investigators suspected that the six victims were shot by members of the terrorist Islamic state (IS).
