Fear penetrates Kabul after deadly cycle of violence

Streets in Afghan capital largely empty as residents say they feel unprotected after multiple attacks in recent days.

"Today, Kabul looks like the city of the dead," Mohammed Asif Yousufi says solemnly from the photography studio he owns on the outskirts of the Afghan capital.

"I have never seen this kind of sadness and fear spread across the city before," Yousufi adds.

He is not alone in feeling like this. Kabul has just suffered one of the bloodiest weeks in years, leaving its streets devoid of life and its residents gripped by fear - and feeling unprotected.

The cycle of violence began on Wednesday when a powerful truck bomb ripped through the city's diplomatic zone. - More, Aljazeera
