By World on The Run

ABC News – In April 1978, the president of Afghanistan was assassinated in a pro-communist coup. On Christmas Eve a little over a year and a half later, Soviet tanks rolled into Kabul.

The guns have rarely fallen silent ever since, and the bloodshed has not stopped. Hundreds of thousands have died, perhaps millions: Afghans, Russians, Americans, Britons. The list is as long as it is painful — a reminder of the suffering this country has endured for more than four decades.
