Students poured out of Sayed ul-Shuhada secondary school in Kabul on Saturday, May 8, as explosions rocked the neighborhood.
At least 85 people were killed in the bombing – most of them school girls.
What follows is a series of attacks in recent years that have struck schools, training centers, hospitals, wedding halls and mosques in the same part of the Afghan capital.
The Dasht-e Barchi area of Afghanistan is largely populated by ethnic Hazaras and Shiite Muslims, and the attacks have raised fears for their communities.
The families of some of the girls who died told the BBC about the grief and fear they are now living with.
