Akram and the Tank
The Soviet BMD-1 growled to a halt in front of Akram, scattering his long-haired goats. The tank commander shouted. Akram shrugged his incomprehension but recognised the word “Mujihadeen”. Akram was a goatherd of around 11 years of age.
Three infantrymen emerged from the rear of the tank, spaced themselves out and trained their weapons upon him. Two stood back while the third searched him. Satisfied, they shot one of his goats, hefted it into the tank, re-embarked and the BMD-1 edged away.
Akram felt underneath his largest goat and took out the concealed rocket launcher.
