AAN’s Kate Clark is quoted twice in Giuliano Battiston’s article about the Khalqi arrest/death lists and Dostum’s apology about his involvement in civil war crimes:

“As Kate Clark, a member of the Kabul-based Afghanistan Analysts Network, pointed out, the 4,875 names listed are ‘only a fraction of the total number who were forcibly disappeared during this period or killed in subsequent phases of the war…. All governments “since the 1978 coup and many armed groups have practiced torture. Most have carried out summary executions and massacres and indiscriminate bombing or indeed the deliberate targeting of civilians,’ Clark said.”

She calls Dostum’s apology “also the first small step on a path which no other Afghan leader has taken before.”
