Ulema meets in Kabul, issues fatwa condemning violence, and calling for peace talks. A suicide attacker near the gates of the gathering kills several people. (The linked AFP article gives the death toll as 7 but it has since risen.) I have not been able to locate the exact full text of the fatwa but according to the AP report:
Less than an hour before the attack happened, Ghofranullah Murad, a member of the council, read out a written statement from the gathering saying that innocent Afghan men, women and children are the true victims of the 17-year-long war.
“The ongoing war in Afghanistan is illegal and has no root in Sharia (Islamic) law,” the statement said. “It is illegal according to Islamic laws and it does nothing but shed the blood of Muslims.”
“We the religious Ulema call on the Taliban to respond positively to the peace offer of the Afghan government in order to prevent further bloodshed in the country,” it added.
The fatwa also said that killing people by any means — such as bombs and suicide attacks — as well as violent acts, including robbery and kidnapping, count as sins in Islam.
Half of Afghan children are not in school, most of them girls. “In the worst-affected areas as many as 85% of girls are not getting an education, with child marriage, a lack of female teachers and poor school facilities among the major reasons.”
In Iraq, severe drought is compounded by Turkey diverting water from the Tigris, but parliament is unable to muster a quorum to address the issue.
Iraqi courts issue an arrest warrant for Rebwar Talabani, a leader of the Kurdish independence movement.
