In the frame with Véronique de Viguerie

Véronique de Viguerie‘s image on Afghan men in Kandahar is profiled on the excellent Verve Photo blog,

“I took this picture in Kandahar. I was doing a story on the growing influence of the Taliban in southern Afghanistan. I was told that the Taliban were using poor people to work for them. So early morning we went to the market where all the men were waiting for day work. They do anything you need for a few dollars. This “main d’oeuvre” is used by the insurgency to carry explosives, arms etc.” link
