A teacher watches a female student play the violin at the Kabul Music Academy January 7, 2012. In Afghanistan's sole music academy, students learn how to play traditional and western instruments as part of a government initiative to relieve the pains of decades of war through music. Despite a rich musical legacy, Afghanistan's melodic development has been severely disrupted by years of war and outright banned during the austere rule of the Taliban. At the Afghanistan National Institute of Music, orphans learn how to sing and play instruments alongside talented promising musicians who are selected on merit. Picture taken January 7, 2012.

More than 100 mixed or girls' schools have closed in Ghazni province in recent weeks in what the Ministry of Education says is a Taliban campaign against educating girls. The Taliban denied involvement. Afghan girls were banned from receiving an education and women were not allowed to work or vote under the five-year rule of the hardline Islamist Taliban before the group was toppled by U.S.-backed Afghan forces in 2001.

Afghan girls attend their first day of class at a new school built with German aid money in the village of Deh Hassan, northern Afghanistan, March 18, 2008, during a visit by NATO Supreme Commander General John Craddock. With the world marking five years since the invasion of Iraq, a NATO-led force of some 40 states is at pains to argue it is not losing a longer war in the deserts and mountains of Afghanistan. NATO officials say building schools and repairing vital infrastructure in parallel to military efforts are the way ahead in Afghanistan more than six years after U.S.-led forces toppled the Taliban in pursuit of Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda.

A group of Afghan youth pose for photos during Sound Central, a one-day "stealth festival" in Kabul October 1, 2011. Sound Central, the one-day "stealth festival" that organisers hope will draw 1,000 to 2,000 young Afghans, is the first music festival the country has seen since it plunged into three decades of violence in the late 1970s. In a country where music was banned for years under the austere Taliban regime, the festival is a daring venture which has been publicized largely by word of mouth, and the date has been kept deliberately vague. Messages revealing the time and venue will go out to music fans only on the morning of the event. REUTERS/Ahmad Masood (AFGHANISTAN - Tags: ENTERTAINMENT SOCIETY)
