But we still have a job to do.” Cowman said that many of the slain workers belonged to the Shiite Hazara ethnicity - a community that has frequently come under attack by Islamic State fighters in recent years.Another 16 workers of the charity were wounded in the attack, which happened in the Baghlan-e Markazi district of the northern province of Baghlan.
