On Tuesday night, there was an attack in Afghanistan's Baghlan Province in the northeast of the country on the staff of the HALO Trust, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to clearing landmines. Host Marco Werman speaks with Chris Woolf, a former BBC and World journalist who credits the HALO Trust with helping to save his life while he was working for the BBC in Afghanistan in the early 1990s. Woolf's memoir, “Bumbling Through the Hindu Kush: A Memoir of Fear and Kindness in Afghanistan,” will be published in September.
