A young Afghan boy danced with joy after finishing four years of physiotherapy, which gave him full control over his new prosthetic leg.

A video posted on social media showed five-year-old Ahmed dancing with a huge smile at an ICRC medical centre in Kabul.

According to local media reports Ahmed was only eight months old when he was caught in the crossfire between Taliban and Afghan government forces and lost his leg.
