Images of war and terror are almost all the world sees of Afghanistan these days. But with the arrival of spring, joy and hope rejuvenate the capital, as it celebrates Nowruz, says DW's Nabila Karimi-Alekozai.
Three deadly attacks in just one week have put residents of the Afghan capital in a state of shock. Fear and hopelessness are spreading throughout the city. DW's Hussain Sirat reports from Kabul.
It seems as if there is no end in sight to the spate of deadly attacks occurring relentlessly in Afghanistan, killing scores and throwing lives in disarray. Is the new US strategy responsible for this spike in terror?
A massive truck bomb has hit Kabul's highly secure diplomatic area, killing at least 90 people and wounding hundreds. The German Embassy was heavily damaged, and Berlin has now postponed deportations to Afghanistan.
Two locations in the Afghan capital have been struck by explosions and armed fighters. The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the attacks that are seen as the beginning of a spring offensive.
