Afghan Taliban Photography Magazine, October 2009 Issue

In Fight #10 (October 2009)

October 2009 issue of the Afghan Taliban photography magazine In Fight, which reproduces photographs of the ongoing insurgency-war in Afghanistan between the United States, NATO, and an ever-expanding Pashtun resistance, led by the Taliban and several other groups, particularly those headed by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar and Jalaluddin Haqqani. These type of photographs are rarely if ever seen in U.S. media, mainstream or otherwise.

Thanks for reading and for the comment/question. I'm not 100% sure, but in the past, they've just pulled photographs from wire services and news agencies like the Associated Press and Agence France-Presse.

Thanks for the answer... It's a quite a fascinating use as you mentioned. Usually we never see these type of photographs in the media in the U.S or in Europe.
