Afghanistan: Attack on Afghan woman teacher
Source:Human Rights Watch
An Afghan woman teacher in Kandahar has been targeted in an acid-attack following a leaflet campaign in the former Taliban stronghold, according to a city official.
The hand-written pamphlets in Kandahar, the southern Afghan city from which Taliban chief Mullah Mohammad Omar ran the ultra-Islamic movement, warned men not to send their daughters to schools or their women to work.
