FRANKFURT (AFP):   Publishers from Afghanistan, a country torn by three decades of conflict, are for the first time showcasing their books at the industry’s biggest meet-up, which opened in Germany Wednesday. Mohammad Ibrahim Shariti, who owns and runs one of Afghanistan’s biggest publishing companies, said he represents his country’s about 60 publishers at the Frankfurt Book Fair. He hopes to tap into the international network of more than 7,000 exhibitors from around 100 countries attending the five-day event and show that his country is back on the publishing map.
