This picture taken on October 7, 2017 shows Kyrgyz nomad families traveling on yaks in the Wakhan Corridor in Afghanistan. For centuries, the nomadic Kyrgyz people traveled freely across Central and South Asia, fording rivers and cutting across snow-capped mountains with their herds of livestock. Today they are trapped on the "roof of the world" - caught in Afghanistan's remote and mountainous Wakhan Corridor with little hope of a way out. - AFP
