Today with grave heart, we write the news that Afghan archaeologist Abdul Wahab Ferozi was killed by the Taliban in a bomb blast while traveling to work at the ancient Buddhist city of Mes Aynak in Afghanistan. Three others were also wounded in the explosion.
The dangerous and arduous commute to Mes Aynak had been depicted in our film, ridden with landmines and volatile relationship with the Taliban.
These heroic archaeologists have been risking their lives daily to save their countries priceless world heritage. Please show these amazing individuals your support here. The archaeologists do this work for little pay and with limited support from the Afghan government and the world community. They deserve our thanks, love, and support.
