Football fans in Afghanistan are enjoying the country's first premier league competition, with thousands of fans attending matches in Kabul.

The league comprises eight teams and ends in mid-October, with prize money of $15,000 (£9300) at stake. Players are paid $10 (£6) a day during the tournament.

Matches are also shown live on television - the country's first commercial sports venture.
