For children, war means - among other things - bombed-out schools and a lack of teachers. It puts their futures at stake. In Kabul, Afghanistan, a mobile library provides them with a safe haven where they can escape their daily struggles.
The explosion took place as a number of students were waiting to sit an exam at Afghanistan's oldest and largest university. At least eight people were killed and 33 were injured.
Experts say the first direct talks between the Taliban and Afghan officials are crucial because the Islamists had previously refused to engage with Kabul. The US has hailed substantive progress on all parts of a deal.
The blast rattled windows in the Afghan capital and smoke was seen billowing over the city. At least 65 people were injured in the explosion, which took place during rush hour.
The Taliban and Afghan officials have agreed on a "promise to reduce violence," Germany's envoy says. Hosted by Qatar, the German-brokered talks could also spark progress in negotiations between the US and the Taliban.
