The German national killed in the terrorist attack against the Intercontinental hotel in Kabul last weekend was a commited Christian.



According to news agency Idea, Brigitte Weiler was 66 years old and had been working among Afghans in poverty since the 1980s. She was a committed evangelical Christian.



Weiler was a nurse and was engaged with projects in the country with the project Cabilla. She helped providing school materials and winter clothes for 2.200 children, and was involved in the acquisition of infrastructures such as a water tank.



The Christian aid organisation Shelter Now told Idea that Weiler was on a trip to visit a project with deaf people in the region, when the terrorist attack happened. She usually stayed with friends or in hostels, but in this trip she had decided to stay in the Intercontinental for security reasons - the hotel was believed to be one of the safest places in Afghanistan's capital city.



 



KABUL: DRAMATIC LEVELS OF VIOLENCE



At least 23 other people were killed in the attack against the hotel on January 21. Six radical Taliban extremists entered the building with guns and opened fire against guests. Most of the victims, 14, were foreigners (mainly from Ukraine and the United States).



Only in 2017, 20 major terrorist attacks in Kabul killed more than 500 people.
