KABUL RESIDENT SHAVES BEARD IN BARBER SHOP.
A Kabul resident shaves off his beard, mandated by the city's former
rulers, in a barber shop after Taliban forces vacated the Afghan
capital November 13, 2001. Greeted by cheering residents, opposition
fighters captured Afghanistan's capital Kabul on Tuesday in defiance of
international pressure to stay out, after the city was abandoned by the
Taliban under the cover of darkness. REUTERS/Sayed Salahuddin
