KABUL, Jan. 20 (Xinhua) -- People are struggling to cope with winter in the war-torn and cash-strapped Afghanistan, as the majority of the country's some 35 million population living under the poverty line and barely can bear the expenses of daily basic needs.

The security situation in Afghanistan has remained generally calm since the Taliban's takeover of power in mid-August last year. However, uncertainty remains as the country's economic situation has worsened with a higher unemployment rate and rising poverty.
