Interior designer Zahra Afridi (R) kicks a punching bag during a kickboxing training session at her home in Islamabad, Pakistan. Afridi runs her own interior design company. Her most recent project was a Classic Rock Coffee cafe in Islamabad.

Though instability continues to plague Pakistan and many areas are dominated by social conservatism, some of the country's more affluent residents have worked to fashion a very different kind of lifestyle for themselves. Pictures of men and women taking part in all sorts of activities and professions -- from being a pilates instructor, to a textile retail entrepreneur, to a member of a rock band -- offer a different view of Pakistan to images of conflict that often make the news.

An Afghan resident points his weapon at the dead body of an unidentified militant, as a way of showing his hatred for insurgents, at a building where three other militants were located at, after an attack in Kabul on July 17.

Militants armed with rocket-propelled grenades attacked Kabul International Airport in one of the most audacious assaults on the facility, used by both civilians and the military, in a year. The attack lasted about four hours after four unidentified militants armed with automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenades opened fire on the airport from the roof of the building just to its north. Residents walked into the building, after the insurgents were all killed.
