A Face Of Victimhood Defaced In Afghanistan

A group of Afghan streets artists painted a mural to pay tribute to a prominent human rights defender who was killed by Hezb-e Islami, the former militant group that has since reconciled with the government.

But the mural in the capital, Kabul, did not last long. Only days after it was completed, masked men arrived to deface it. Initially thwarted by security guards, the culprits returned in the cover of darkness to finish the job.
