Skateboarding project rolled out into north Afghanistan

A project which teaches Afghan children skateboarding as well as providing meals and education is expanding further into the country.

Skateistan was set up in Kabul in 2007 and proved hugely popular with boys and girls alike.

BBC Persian's Tahir Qadiry joined some young skateboarders at the NGO's new skate-park and education facility in the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif.
