"Tarana, age 12, stands screaming, surrounded by the bodies of men, women and children who were just killed by a suicide bomber who detonated a bomb during a religious ceremony in #Kabul - #Afghanistan on December 6, 2011. “When I could stand up, I saw that everybody was around me on the ground, really bloody. I was really, really scared,” said the girl, whose name means “melody” in English. Out of 17 women and children from her family who went to a riverside shrine in Kabul that day to mark the Shiite holy day of #Ashura, seven died including her seven-year-old brother Shoaib. More than 70 people lost their lives in all, and at least nine other members of Tarana’s family were wounded. The blast has prompted fears that Afghanistan could see the sort of #sectarian #violence that has pitched #Shiite against #Sunni #Muslims in #Iraq and #Pakistan " (Massoud Hossaini/AFP/Getty Images)
