Afghan model Sultan Qasim Sayeedi, 18, poses for a picture in Kabul, Afghanistan, January 14, 2019. Sayeedi scours Facebook, YouTube and Instagram to learn about fashion and modelling and draws inspiration from his favourite models, including Saudi Arabia's Omar Borkan, and Canadian popstar Justin Bieber. "We're afraid that if the Taliban come then we will not be able to hold our shows," he said. Despite that wariness, Sultan says it's time the fighting ended. "If American troops will go peace will come, we want peace," he said. REUTERS/Mohammad Ismail SEARCH "AFGHANISTAN YOUTH" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

"The thing I'm most worried about is that if they return, I'll not be able to continue playing music," said Atayee. "It will be great if the government and the Taliban reach a peace deal. At that time there should be access to music for everyone and women's rights must be protected." REUTERS/Mohammad Ismail SEARCH "AFGHANISTAN YOUTH" FOR THIS STORY.
