A young Afghan woman shows her face in public for the first time after 5 years of Taliban Sharia law as she waits at a food distribution centre in central Kabul November 14, 2001. Under its strict interpretation of Islam, the Taliban ordered all women hidden behind head-to-toe burqas. Afghan opposition forces consolidated their hold on the newly captured capital of Kabul and said new gains meant the Taliban now held less than 20 percent of the country as international calls intensified for a new broad-based government and more U.N. involvement.

Afghan actor Anyatullah Farmin (L) stands with a mock gun as an unidentified actor has his make-up done before the filming of a scene for the comedy "The Ministry", in Kabul August 2, 2011. Britain and the United States poke fun at incompetent, arrogant middle managers in the television comedy "The Office", but in Afghanistan the target is a fictional minister of garbage in a new series called "The Ministry". Instead of a series mocking drab office life in impoverished Afghanistan, where there is widespread unemployment, "The Ministry" mockumentary puts a satirical spin on some serious issues such as corruption, drug trafficking and nepotism.
