Journalist sentenced to death

23 year old Afghan journalist Parwiz Kambakhsh has been sentenced to death in Balkh province for distributing an internet article on verses of the Qur’an relating to women’s rights. The sentence is in accordance with Article 130 of the Anglo-American sponsored Afghan Constitution, and reflects the alliance of the occupying forces with the religious-fascist Northern Alliance.
