Download Afghanistan might not be your first choice for a holiday, but the number of tourists coming to Herat Province is growing.

Last year there was a 60% increase in the number of tourists to the area.

More and more international tourists are flocking to visit the historic sites, the mosques and mausoleums in the city of Herat. And the growing level of tourism brings jobs for local people.

But security is still a concern.

Download Dog fighting is one of Afghanistan’s unofficial national sports.

It was banned by Taliban because it was considered to be un-Islamic.

But since the Taliban lost power more than 10 years ago, dog fighting has grown rapidly in popularity and big money passes hands during the fights. Prizes can be as much as tens of thousands of dollars.

In Kabul, the main fighting season takes place over the winter months. Fights are held every week in public parks or empty parking lots.

But as Ghayor Waziri reports from Kabul, the fights are now spreading to residential areas and people are starting to worry.

Download 14 prisoners were hanged in Afghanistan last month. They were found guilty of serious offences including rape and child abuse.

Executions have been rare since the fall of the Taliban more than 10 years ago.

But many people in Afghanistan believe that corporal punishment is an effective deterrent and will help to reduce the rising level of crime in the country.

Human rights groups have condemned the hangings as cruel and inhuman.

Ghayor Waziri has more from Kabul.
