Issa was the national wrestling champion. Accused of smuggling weapons, he was arrested and tortured by the Taliban.
On his release from prison, he couldn't recognise the members of his family. After treatment and several stays in hospital, he recovered his memory but he still often has fits which stop him from leading a normal life.
