During my trip to Herat, Afghanistan I was embedded with the Italian Army. Thanks to the PRT (provincial reconstruction team) I was able to visit the prison of Herat and take pictures. The structure is divided into a female and a male sector, and is placed in the middle of the city.
The prison is managed by the Afghan Forces and contains 3500 men and 171 women detainees.
