KABUL (Reuters) - In the morning, the gunmen burst into the maternity ward of a hospital in Kabul disguised as police. They killed 24 people, including 16 women and two newborn babies.

No group claimed responsibility for the May 12 massacre.

Those were the facts that could be quickly established.

But the horrific brutality of the assault on the maternity ward shook Afghanistan – a nation that has seen decades of militant violence – and it shook the Reuters journalists who set out to tell a fuller story of the lives that had been lost and shattered.

If you missed it there is an intext link to the original story or I can just give it to you.

It's brutal.
