Dodging Bullets To Deliver A Baby

The female doctor running the last hospital in Afghan city Kunduz.

For the past year, gynaecologist Dr Marzia Salam Yaftali has been running the last-standing, public hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz. The city has long been dangerous, but the stakes were especially high in 2015 when the Taliban attempted to recapture it. Marzia tells Outlook's Emily Webb about living through the siege.
