Many of the impoverished families living in the caves say they are too poor to live anywhere else even though the government insists that they are doing damage to an the area, near the giant Buddhas of Bamiyan, which is a rare archaeological site. All are refugees who fled areas of fighting during the Taliban era, and have now returned from the other parts of Afghanistan.  The cave dwellers are all Hazara, who are religiously and ethnically distinct and survivors of intense persecution by the Taliban. The Bamiyan region is the stronghold of the Hezb-i-Whadat party, the principal faction representing the Shia Muslims of the central area of Afghanistan.  (Photo Paula Bronstein/Getty Images)
