Teen and younger brother lauded for reportedly repelling Taliban killers


Qamar Gul, 16, and her brother Habibullah, witnessed Taliban militants killing their parents in cold blood at their home in central Afghanistan. Gul picked up her father's gun and fired back, killing two attackers and wounding a third. During the raid, three of the insurgents burst into the family's home, and grabbed and pulled Gul's parents outside.
