Afghan village of 70 families faces ruin with mosque massacre


“The village is ruined,” said Mawlawi Sadaqat, a local religious leader who led prayers as the bodies were buried. “Each house is left with orphans.”The massacre took place when a suicide bomber walked into Jawdara’s mosque on Friday, where men had gathered for the weekly congregational prayer. Two men had spread out a shawl, collecting donations from visitors to cover the funerals for families left without men. The massacre in Jawdara fell around the anniversary of another similar bout of carnage just 30 miles east, in the Momand Dara district. About 200 families settled in a vast desert called Daka in Momand Dara, starting a makeshift village.
