The Afghan Bruce Lee

The Afghan Bruce Lee

Abbas Alizada calls himself the Afghan Bruce Lee. From the ruins of an iconic bombed-out palace above Kabul, the young Afghan man bearing a striking resemblance to kung fu legend Bruce Lee is high-kicking his way to Internet fame, aiming to show another side to his war-weary nation. Someone get Chuck Norris to pose with this young man.
