A labourer cropping the wood in wood market at Pakistani border town Chaman along with Afghanistan border on 03 December, 2013. With winter setting in, people are stocking up on wood to heat their homes and shops. The price of wood has increased this year because of a rise in fuel prices, land and machine rental. Still it is much the cheapest option for poor families. Most the wood is cut from different parts of Pakistan, but cheap wood is also brought across the border from Afghanistan. UPI Next/Matiullah.
