Afghan overdose

Afghanistan is the world’s biggest exporter of black-market opium, from which heroin is made. It’s a multi-billion dollar business, responsible for around a hundred thousand deaths every year and it’s a major source of income for terrorists. RT Doc traveled to the poppy fields where death is harvested to find out why no one can put a stop to this deadly trade.

Watch “Afghan Overdose” on the RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.
