NPR's Scott Simon reports that Marjan the lion is to be buried today at the Kabul Zoo. In life, he suffered the torments of war and injuries from a grenade thrown by an Afghan guerrilla. The one-eyed lion became the symbol of the country's deprivations. He was found dead in his cage Saturday morning.
