Sunday, September 03, 2006 - Afghanistan opium cultivation skyrockets

"With the economy struggling, there are not enough jobs and many Afghans say they have to grow opium poppies to feed their families. The trade already accounts for at least 35% of Afghanistan's economy, financing warlords and insurgents."

A sad situation - Very much worse than it was in 2001.
