ADVANCE FOR USE SUNDAY, JAN. 6, 2012 AND THEREAFTER - In this Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012 photo, construction worker Timur Shah speaks during an interview in Kajaki, Helmand province, south of Kabul, Afghanistan. Shah spends a couple of months at a time working at Kajaki. "My immediate family knows I am here. But if anyone else asks they will make something up," he said. Shah said security improved when U.S. Marines flooded the province, but is deteriorating as the Marines leave. "Just at the time the American forces started leaving here, the Taliban started to appear again, in the whole area," he said. (AP Photo/Heidi Vogt)
