Afghan girl kills two Taliban militants in fightback

A teenage Afghan girl has been hailed on social media for her “heroism” after fighting back last week against Taliban militants who killed her parents.

The girl took the family’s AK-47 assault rifle, shot dead two of the militants and wounded several others, local officials in Ghor province said.

The Taliban came to the house because the girl’s father was a government supporter, they added.

Sad state of affairs over there, senseless killing. We have some of that here too, sadly enough.

That’s what I fear will happen if we leave, a blood bath. It’s a dilemma very much.

She’ll have a hell of a target on her back. She needs to be given asylum somewhere that isn’t a majority Muslim country.
