Sad news

Noor Ahmad Amiri, 26, who worked as an English teacher with the British Council at what was dubbed ‘the Sandhurst of Afghanistan’ died after being shot in the neck in crossfire at Hamid Karzai International Airport, Kabul, last week.

He had been queuing with his two brothers and their wives to enter the airport when he was hit and spent more than five days in hospital before dying. As reported by the Daily Mail, one of Amiri’s older brothers described Noor as “a role model of ethics and service to people.” 

The two brothers and their wives he was queuing with have since made it to the Middle East, but the rest of his family, including his parents and another brother, are in hiding in Kabul.
