Unfortunately no one is going to give a horse s**t about the names of those ten girls who faced horrific and painful ending of their lives because some stupid maniac felt planting a deadly bomb by the side of the road they regularly went to get firewood.

In a separate episode, 10 girls were killed in a rural district of eastern Afghanistan on Monday when a roadside bomb exploded while they were collecting firewood, the Afghan police said. The office of the governor of Nangarhar Province said the girls were all between 9 and 11 years old. The Ministry of Education said some were as young as 6.
