Indeed it is a heart-rending thing to imagine that the happiness one was waiting for, just vanished in the blink on aye. Details reveal Shamila spent more than 10 years of marriage in the stress of not having a child of her own. After 13 years of pain and misery, the 33-years-old woman and her newborn baby boy were brutally killed in the 12th May’s Kabul attack.

According to the sources, in the morning of the attack, Shamila Bibi was rushed to the Government Mental and Child Health Center for delivery. Unfortunately, a few hours after the child was born, the hospital came under attack and Shamila got stuck inside. While the family was waiting for her to return with the child, Shamila was burned down and the baby was shot dead.
