AFP report on Hazara-Kuchi conflict

Finally, the Hazara-Kuchi conflict got some visibility on mainstream international media. Each year, the Pashton nomads known as Kuchis have been invading the Hazara villages in central Afghanistan, at least, for the past one and half centuries. Once I blogged about this issue two years ago.

This year, according to this AFP report, the Kuchis being “armed with machine guns and rocket launchers” have caused several casualties and a lot destructions. Thanks to the writer Joris Fioriti and photographer Massoud Husseini, who have given voice to the voiceless. You can read the report and see the photos here. This gives you almost a full picture of what is going  on in Hazarajat.
