Afghanistan in first census for three decades

Plagued by years of fighting, war-torn country attempts to gather crucial data about its citizens.

    The last time Afghanistan attempted an official census was 1979 - and that was called off because of fighting.

    Now an ambitious project is gathering demographic and economic information about Afghans.
