Afghan Vice-President Marshal Mohammad Qasim Fahim died of natural causes after a turbulent life that reflected the country's recent past. Fahim, a leader of the Tajik ethnic minority, was senior vice-president under President Hamid Karzai, who will step down at elections next month as US-led combat forces pull out of Afghanistan after 13 years of fighting the Taliban.
