Video from Kandahar

I’ve been a bit lax in writing regularly, so I thought I’d upload some video for you.

First is fireworks from a wedding ceremony in southern Kandahar City this evening.  There’ve been fireworks for the past 3 days, which has been quite nice in the evenings.  Don’t think that this is a common occurrence.  I’ve only seen fireworks one other time in the past year or two in Kandahar.



And this one which is part of a 45-minute interview I did with the deputy head of the provincial council about the attack on the provincial council just over a week ago.  In this very short extract he starts explaining how his bodyguard died while struggling to stop a suicide bomber.
