'Kite Runner' Delayed Out of Fear for Actors

Paramount has decided to delay the opening of the movie Kite Runner. The studio is working to get the children who were featured in the movie and their families out of Afghanistan because of fears that they will be harmed.

The film depicts the rape of one of the boys and is expected to inflame public opinion in Kabul.
