AFGHAN WOMEN WEARING BURQAS WALK IN FRONT OF DESTROYED PRESIDENTIAL
PALACE IN KABUL.
Afghan women in burqas walk in Kabul, January 4, 2002, in front of 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
