Afghanistan HS toured Taliban hearts: Theft and violence declined, but landmines tear limbs and opium trade continues

Theft and violence appear to have diminished power in Afghanistan, but landmines in the wake of the war have torn limbs and the opium trade continues.

Kandahar Province, Afghanistan

Just in this village the Taliban movement is said to have been born.

Sangesar is in the heart of the Pashtun people, a couple of kilometers south of the highway connecting the provinces of Kandahar and Helmand.

The village is bordered by pomegranate orchards. Corn, vines and hemp grow in the surrounding fields. The houses are made of clay, as is usually the case in this area. They show the damage of decades of fighting.
