Two years after she was widowed and uprooted by war, Saipocho Kholikova returned here from a refugee camp and stood in the vine-covered portico of her home.

"They opened the gate and told him I am back and I would live here," Kholikova recalled, sitting cross-legged on the matted floor of her vacant living room.
