Nowruzee who says he and his family's life has been threatened, wears a holstered gun and has four bodyguards posed (left to right) behind him; Mohammad Mehdi, Abdul Salaam, Mehdiullah -- single name only, Mohammad Ibrahim. The family paid $65,000 ransom to kidnappers only to find that the boy was murdered by the men who took him, including a family bodyguard. Herat's relative success economically have caused hundreds of kidnappings, with families of businessmen paying large sums to ransom their relatives.
