AFGHAN BOY WEAVES RUG WITH HIS BROTHERS IN KABUL. 
Twelve-year-old Arshad's shadow is cast as his fingers dart deftly
among the coloured threads stretched over a simple loom where he and
two of his four brothers sit weaving a brightly patterned Afghan rug in
Kabul December 9, 2001. After five years of making kilims, rising well
before dawn and toiling 11 hours a day, Arshad is expert at the
centuries-old skill. Child labour is endemic in Afghanistan, where 23
years of war, three years of drought and the absence of a conventional
economy have made the central Asian country one of the world's poorest.
