Afghan disabled artist marks Turkey’s coup attempt

A wheelchair-bound teenager from Afghanistan has drawn a sketch to mark last July’s defeated coup attempt in Turkey using just her mouth.

Rubaba Mohammedi, 16, has been unable to use her hands or feet since birth but was able to draw the picture symbolizing the Turkish people’s resistance to the coup attempt by clenching a pencil between her teeth.

At an event organized by the National Islamic Movement of Afghanistan, she asked party officials to make sure the picture reaches Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The drawing shows a hand with the Turkish star and crescent on its cuff protecting a peaceful street scene below from bullets.

The July 15 defeated coup, which was commemorated on Saturday and Sunday, saw 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.
