VILNIUS - Lithuanian female prisonsers have begun a campaign to knit a variety of warm clothes - such as socks, mittens and hats - for poor people in the Ghor region of Afghanistan.

"About 100 or one third of all prisoners -- all those who know how to knit -- are knitting socks, gloves and scarves. They happily joined this goodwill action," Edvardas Norvaisas, director of Panevezys prison, told AFP.
