Dispatch from the Religion of Peace
Good God, these are the people we are trying to liberate from the Taliban?
Mahgul, a 25-year-old newlywed, was murdered in Herat, a region of western Afghanistan where attacks against women have been on the rise, Afghan police told journalists. Her killing this past week was particularly disturbing because her body was found decapitated outside her marital home.
Police said the arrests on Saturday include her mother-in-law, father-in-law, and her husband. [...]
Police said their investigation has led them to conclude Mahgul was killed because she refused to become a prostitute and that during her four months of marriage she was repeatedly pressured by her mother-in-law to sleep with other men.
