Military, government and security officials attend a buring of confiscated opium November 3, in Herat, Afghanistan. The opium was confiscated by security forces during recent anti-drug operations across the Afghanistan.

This first image is my favorite of this series.  I love how they brought out the fancy furniture for the burn.
