Cockfighting in Kabul2008-05-01–2008-05-03
Cockfighting is one of Afghanistans national "sports", forbidden by the Talibans, it is now practised in Kabuls parks again. The roosters are extremely expensive and often costs around 1000 USD. When not fighting they are treated better than most afghans treat their children. During one weekend of cockfighting the best one can bring in as much as 400 USD to its owner. Often the fights go on until one rooster is killed.
