Children works as weavers of Afghan carpets in an illegal factory on October 1, 2001 in Attock, Pakistan. This village has about 20 carpet factories, where children aged from 5 years old work usually from 4 am to 11 pm in bad conditions and for low wages. This is one of the few chances for Afghan refugees in the village to make money. The children are often beaten and denied school studies. Child labor is common in Pakistan.
