Pashtun boy slides into stream in outskirts of southern Afghan city of Kandahar.
A Pashtun boy slides into "low walla", or big stream, from a small dam in the outskirts of the southern Afghan city of Kandahar, September 16, 2005. Suspected Taliban militants shot dead a candidate in Afghanistan's weekend elections on Friday and the guerrillas warned voters they could be hurt unless they boycotted the polls. Nearly 6,000 Afghan men and women have signed up to run in the country's first parliamentary polls in more then 30 years, scheduled for September 18. REUTERS/Adrees Latif AL/DY
