BAMIYA, AFGHANISTAN - JULY 30: An Afghan farmer harvests wheat, near the ruins of the ancient budha statues that once stood on July 30, 2010 in the central Afghan province of Bamiyan. Bamiyan, some 200 kilometres (124 miles) northwest of Kabul, stands in a deep green and lush valley stretching 100 kilometres through central Afghanistan, on the former Silk Road that once linked China with Central Asia and beyond. The town was home to two nearly 2,000-year-old Buddha statues before they were destroyed by the Taliban, months before their regime was toppled in a US-led invasion in late 2001.
