Son of slain Afghan reporter on road to recovery, Ukrainian parliament fistfight, the dunes of Titan and more.
April 6, 2014 Abuzar Ahmad, the youngest son of slain Afghan Agence France-Presse reporter Sardar Ahmad, makes a ”victory” sign as he poses for a photograph during a visit by his family at a local hospital in Kabul. The child, whose family was gunned down in a luxury Kabul hotel, may soon leave the hospital after recovering rapidly from bullet wounds to his skull, chest and thigh, doctors said. Abuzar, almost 3, suffered fragment wounds in the shooting on March 20 that killed his father, senior AFP reporter Sardar Ahmad; his mother, Homaira; sister Nilofar, 6; and brother Omar, 5. Abuzar’s relatives hope that he will start a new life with many of his cousins who live in Toronto. “He could be discharged within a week or 10 days if things continue to go well,” Luca Radaelli, medical coordinator at the Italian-run Emergency Hospital in Kabul, told AFP.
