The father of the 15 years old boy, torn into pieces by the bomb, speaks about the odyssey of his family, which is running away from the bombs in Afghanistan, but death finds them in Athens.

“I want to ask the Greek people, Greek police, M-r Papandreou and the government to find and arrest the murderers of my child. I want to know that one day they will be sentenced. Those who killed Hami, didn’t only kill my son. In his face they killed millions of refugees, who are extorted from their roots, in order to find a better life in a different place” says Mohammed Nadzafi – the father of the 15 years old boy, torn into pieces by a bomb, into the Patisia neighborhood.

Mr. Nadzafi tells the odyssey of his family which leaves Afghanistan in the end of the last summer in order to find a safer place where to live and raise his children. Half a year later the nightmare that they ran away from finds them in Athens.

„I am sorry that I wasn’t there. Then the bomb might have exploded in my hands and would have saved my child or I was going to see what there was in the bag and the worst would not have happened” Mohamed Nadzafi says.

In Afghanistan Mr. Nadzafi was a principal in a primary school, which was found from his father. Mohamed and his family lived in the city Gasny, which is situated south-east from Kabul, near Pakistan. „But the Talibans are against education, and I could not leave my children and most of all my girls uneducated. When the Americans came we believed that the Talibans are finished. Recently they retrieved their power and my life became a real nightmare” says the father of the little Hami for the Ta nea newspaper. My family decided to run away from Afghanistan – two of the girls went to Iran with their relatives, one went to Australia, and the rest – Mohamed with its wife and the two little children – the 15 years old Hami and his 11 years old sister Ferste went to Europe. They sold their entire property and with the money paid to traffickers to lead them from Pakistan to Turkey from where they go to Greece.

„ I learned a lot for the Greek history from my father and most of all for Alexander the Great, whose name is very popular in Afghanistan. When we gathered the money, I said to my family that we will go to live in Greece. I wanted my children to learn and live in a country which culture we admire. We left the bombs behind our backs, believing that we will be safe but the death was waiting in Athens.”

Even though the ministry of civil protection allowed the family of Mohamed Nadzafi to travel in any country they want, they have decided to stay in Greece. “This time however I have one more reason – here will be buried my son “said the father.

After what has happened on Monday, when the bomb exploded in the hands of the 15 years old boy, his sister was seriously injured. For the moment she has a surgery made on her eyes – she will not be able to see, with one of the eyes, however the doctors are trying to save the ability to see on her other eye. Yesterday they have decided to remove the life supports of the 11 years old girl, because they are sure that her health is stable.

Yesterday two new terrorist organizations took responsibility for the bomb in the Athens neighborhood Patisia, but the police is confused, because the results of the analysis show that the detonating mechanism point towards a third terrorist organization – “Conspiracy of the fiery nuclei”. That terrorist organization however published a declaration on the Greek web-site indymedia that it has nothing to do with the incident.
