Farid, who was injured by a US grenade, enjoys the sun and fresh air outside his ward at the Emergency hospital, Kabul. He had been injured when caught in the cross-fire between Taliban and a US patrol. His father had taken him to the nearest American patrol base but they had refused to treat him on the grounds that he might be Taliban. His father had then driven him to Kabul where he received treatment for head and stomach injuries.
