Jamalo, age 14, from Ghazni sits in her wheelchair outside the International Red Cross Orthopedic (ICRC) rehabilitation center November 21, 2009 Kabul, Afghanistan. Jamalo is now a paraplegic, crippled after her home became a battlefield during a violent attack between the Taliban and U.S forces over 5 months ago. She was inside her home during the attack when a rocket hit, killing 4 family members including her sister. She broke her arm and was hit by schrapnel. Ghazni is a Taliban infested area so as a young handicapped female she has little hope of education or even marriage.2009 was the deadliest year in terms of civilian casualties in Afghanistan ever since the start of the U.S.-led war against Taliban in the country. The Taliban are now staging suicide attacks and IED blasts in densely populated areas to create a bigger impact as more of Afghan's war wounded hit the headlines. Relations between Afghans and the American and NATO forces have become more fragile with every passing day.
