Lynchmord in Afghanistan: “Die Polizei hat tatenlos zugesehen”

< 1 min

Deutschlandradio-Kultur, 21 March 2015

Full transcript plus audio of an interview (in German) with AAN’s Thomas Ruttig about the killing of a young woman – who allegedly had burnt a Quran, an accusation later denied by the ministry of religious affairs – by  a lynch mob. That the police did not do its job, and that it remains to be seen whether the perpetrators are brought to a fair trial, also reflects the lack of success of the 13-year long ISAF mission, the German part of which – as it was just disclosed – cost 8.8 billion euros.
