An Afghan pedals his bicycle in Kabul, January 4, 2002 past the
war-torn outline of Darulaman Palace, build for King Amanullah Khan in
1923. Much, if not most, of Kabul lies in ruins, the results of a
devastating conflict between rival Mujahideen factions which followed
the Solviet withdrawal in 1989. REUTERS/Erik de Castro
