Headscarves and bare hands: women deliver baby during Kabul hospital attackAs armed men rampaged through an Afghan hospital, shooting dead mothers and babies, a group of pregnant women hid in a room with one of them about to give birth. "The mother was in pain but was trying not to make any sound," said a midwife who helped deliver the baby girl and sever the umbilical cord with her bare hands. "She even put her finger in the newborn baby's mouth to stop her from crying," the woman told AFP by phone on Friday, her voice still shaking three days after the attack in Kabul.
