Germany Afghanistan Buddhas


FILE – In this undated file photo, the world’s tallest statue of Buddha, measuring up to 180 feet high, is seen in Bamiyan, Afghanistan. German scientists say it is possible to reconstruct at least one of the giant 1,500 year-old Buddha statues in central Afghanistan that had been dynamited by the Taliban ten years ago despite a worldwide outcry. Erwin Emmerling of Munich’s Technical University said Monday, Feb. 28, 2011, his researchers studied several hundred fragments of the statues that once towered up to 180 feet high in Bamiyan province.
