Captions to pictures can be bothersome for us. We mixed up our countries in the caption to figure 2 in this article by Zulfiqar Ahmed Bhutta (9 February, pp 349-52). Baluchistan and North-West Frontier Province are both in Pakistan, not Afghanistan. The second sentence in the caption should therefore read: “The Taliban movement arose among Afghan children attending madrassahs in neighbouring Baluchistan and North-West Frontier Province, Pakistan.”
