Afghanistan - Lives of women - Widow
Aqela, widow, with photo of her husband.
"Twenty years ago, in Najibullah's time my husband, Amachan, was killed. I was married when I was 18 (it was an arranged marriage ) and we had 9 years together, and I had 4 children with him. My husband was an engineer but he had to do military service and that was when he was killed, in fighting with the Mujaheddin."
