The woman with the haunting, captivating eyes is indeed from Afghanistan.

Apologies for the delay. The response to our contest was overwhelming. Thanks to all who played and replied by the 5 p.m. deadline. (Many readers rolled in with correct answers up until 5:52 p.m. and a few incorrectly guessed Iran and Pakistan.)

The photograph below shows a then and now shot of the woman. Reports say she lives with her husband and three daughters in a remote region of Afghanistan.
