An Afghan soldier sits with his rifle guarding the entrance to Afghanistan's national museum in Kabul December 1, 2001. A pile of masonry in a dusty storeroom of Afghanistan's national museum is all that is left of several ancient statues. Two millennia old, they were hacked to pieces by the Taliban's religious police in just two days.
