Kabul, Afghanistan: Before And After The Taliban

398226 11: Sabir Latifi, a Kabul businessman, holds up a painting November 25, 2001 he helped to rescue along with 50 others from Kabul's National Gallery during the last days of the Taliban regime. Latifi had heard of the Taliban's intention to destroy the National Gallery's archive of paintings of living figures. He paid a bribe of $5000 USD to a Taliban official and had the 50 canvases delivered to his house late in the evening on a bicycle. At present, Latifi has few details as to who the painters are, their time period or how they were acquired by the National Gallery. (Photo by Robert Nickelsberg/Getty Images)
