20 August 2011, Kabul, Afghanistan:   Farooq, a cleaner at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Orthopaedic Centre in Kabul where victims of war as well as the disabled, are fitted with artificial limbs made on the compound. He had his hand surgically removed by the Taliban for being a suspected thief at the city's sporting stadium in front of a crowd before the Government was toppled.
