#Repost @natgeo ( @get_repost) ・・・ Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio On this day (20th March) in 2015 the Yemeni crisis took a deadly turn: The al-Badr and al-Hashoosh mosques in Sana'a, the country's largest city, came under quadruple suicide attack during midday prayers. The blasts killed 142 people and wounded more than 351, making it the deadliest terrorist attack in Yemen's history. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL / ISIS) claimed responsibility for the attack. According to the United Nations, 16,200 people have been killed in Yemen since 2015 including 10,000 civilians. The humanitarian situation in what was already one of the world’s poorest nations, is now, after Syria, the most critical on the planet, with 20% of Yemenis severely food insecure. Sana'a, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on account of its distinctive architectural character. The World Heritage Committee has also voiced concern over the damage inflicted to this great Islamic city.

regram @natgeo Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio More from my work for the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) featured in a new book, “AFGHANISTAN Preserving Historic Heritage” by the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme. Here a photograph of the restored Babur's Garden … nestled in the foothills of the Hindu Kush mountains and the fertile alluvial plains of the Kabul River basin, Afghanistan. The garden is named after a young Uzbek Prince, Zahir-ud-Din Muhammad (“Defender of the Faith”; commonly known by his nickname “Babur”) who captured Kabul in 1504 at the age of 21. Babur's garden is divided into stepped terraces of sixteen levels, and his grave is located near the top of the site. The garden represents an oasis of tranquility surrounded by informal residential development; native species of fruit trees and flowers have been planted in the restored garden.

@Regrann from @natgeo - Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio Pleased to see my work for the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) featured in a new book, “AFGHANISTAN Preserving Historic Heritage” by the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme. Here a photograph of the restored Timur Shah Mausoleum set within a public garden adjacent to the Kabul River. One of the largest surviving Islamic monuments in central Kabul, the mausoleum of Timur Shah marks the grave of the son of Ahmad Shah Durrani, who effectively crated the modern state of Afghanistan in the late eighteenth century. The mausoleum was heavily damaged in recent decades, but now restored it stands as one of the most iconic monuments in Kabul and the surrounding park provides much-needed green space in a congested part of the city.
