An Afghan worker warms his hands from the heat of burning old banknotes
in Kabul December 9, 2002. Between 100-150 million old Afghan banknotes
are destroyed daily after Afghanistan's banks exchanged the old notes
with new ones. From the 15 trillion Afghanis in circulation, the banks
have already collected some 13 trillion. REUTERS/Radu Sigheti
