Hundreds of people are killed, shredded, and maimed each year due to these insidious devices. Following the Soviets came the Taliban, whose control meant women were banned from jobs and universities.
In 2001, the United States overthrew the Taliban, but banditry, tribal rivalries and drug-related violence have left the nation unstable. Suicide bombings are a constant threat, and nobody in Afghanistan is safe.
