A Hazara girl covers her face as she holds a child in a cave in Bamiyan
December 15, 2001. The destruction of the 2,000-year-old Buddhas, among
the great wonders of the ancient world, was the first many people
outside Afghanistan had heard of the Taliban or Bamiyan. But a story of
human horror also unfolded in the town and the surrounding area as
forces of the Sunni Muslim Taliban, fired by a perverse interpretation
of Islam, forced tens of thousands of Shi'ite Muslims to flee into the
mountains. NO RIGHTS CLEARANCES OR PERMISSIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR THIS IMAGE REUTERS/Peter Andrews PP04010046
