(WIDK By Olivia Roat) - The friendship between two children cost them their lives, as their bodies were recently found in an eastern province of Afghanistan.
A 12-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy were killed after being doused with acid, purportedly because a friendship had developed between the two children in the extremely conservative country of Afghanistan.
According to International Business Times, the bodies and faces of the young boy and girl were burnt by acid.
Police have no knowledge of the children’s identities because no one has come forward to claim the bodies, which remain in a hospital in the Ghanzi province.
The tragedy reveals the dangers that individuals in Afghanistan face despite the U.S. invasion that ousted the Taliban ten years ago.
