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.

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