AFGHAN VEILED WOMEN CARRY SACKS ON THEIR HEADS IN A BUSY MARKET IN KABUL.
Afghan women carry sacks of goods in a Kabul market on November 15. The ruling Taleban movement on Tuesday urged the Pakistan government to lift restrictions on wheat exports to Afghanistan, saying a flour shortage had reached alarming proportions. Officials said the poor harvest and clampdown on smuggling coincided with the U.N. sanctions on the Taleban for refusing to surrender terrorism suspect Saudi dissident Osama bin Laden, wanted on charges of masterminding the U.S. embassy bombings in East Africa last year.
