AFGHANISTAN-UNREST-ATTACK-ANNIVERSARY

A portrait of slain Afghan national hero Ahmad Shah Massoud is pictured during a ceremony marking the eleventh anniversary of his death in Kabul on September 8, 2012. Massoud, nicknamed the 'Lion of the Panjshir' for his armed struggle against the Taliban that ruled Afghanistan at the time, died September 9, 2001 when two Tunisians posing as journalists with fake Belgian passports detonated a bomb hidden in the camera as they pretended to interview him. His death, just two days before the September 11 attacks in New York and Washington, has been linked to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network by US officials.
