Young Afghan Jugglers Strut Their Stuff

Some 100 kids took part in the eighth-annual Afghanistan Juggling Championships in Kabul on August 14. All of the competitors had won regional competitions in seven provinces to make it to the finals in the capital. The event is part of a weeklong circus festival, which includes street parades and lessons held in refugee camps to help children learn new and rewarding skills.
