Afghan girls Zaifa (R) and Sarina (L) visit their sister's grave at the edge of a cemetery in a suburb of Kabul on December 8, 2001. Their sister, Maqbula, aged four, was abducted and killed two years ago and her eyes removed, according to her family and neighbours. Her death, and that of other children in Kabul when it was under Taliban control, sparked rumours in the city that a gang was on the prowl kidnapping children for their organs. The rumours have not been confirmed. óREUTERS
