On April 19th 2016, Kabul suffered a horrific suicide attack at the hands of the Taliban, killing 64 people and wounding 347 others. As a nation facing ceaseless war for decades, Afghanistan has faced countless tragedies that are regularly discounted in the media as merely part of the cycle of violence. A special session of The Samovar Network invites discussants from Kabul and others from the Afghan diaspora to share their experiences and process the tragedy.
