© Martin Adler / Panos Pictures..Northern Afghanistan, 4th November 2001...The body of 18 year old Abdul Jalil is laid to rest in a makeshift cemetery on the edge of Nawabad refugee camp, with his head pointing towards Mecca. He was heading back to his shelter after getting some water when he fell down and died right in front of the photographer. His heart couldn't take it any longer. Elsewhere in the cemetery, streamers mark the graves of soldiers who have been proclaimed martyrs.
