US-based artist Yazmany Arboleda from 'We Believe In Balloons' addresses a press conference in Kabul on February 18, 2013. Despite grinding poverty and more than three decades of war, a New York-based artist believes 10,000 pink balloons can help bring peace and happiness to Afghans on the streets of Kabul. Yazmany Arboleda has already unleashed coloured balloons in India, Japan and Kenya. He hopes that Afghanistan can be the next to benefit from 'simple happiness' despite being in the grip of an 11-year Taliban insurgency.
