Honey money: Afghanistan's teen bee-businesswoman

For a teenage Afghan woman, Frozan, the honey business is booming and demand is still said to be increasing.

    Beekeeping is being used as a way of helping Afghanistan's economy and to counter the opium trade.

    But it also gives women the chance to earn money, in a country where many rarely work outside their homes.

    And one female student is now running her own successful honey business.
