[Correspondence] July 23, 2016, in Bamyan, Afghanistan

I write this from Bamyan, in central Afghanistan, the capital of the Shia minority Hazara community. The Hazara people were peacefully demonstrating for electricity lines to run through their province when many of them were killed by suicide bombers in Kabul.1 But that type of attack, which happens with an unfortunate regularity in Afghanistan, should not obscure the progress that has been made over the past 10 years.
