How one girl’s killing has put Afghan justice on trial

The Guardian, 8 October 2013

A good reminder by Emma Graham-Harrison that there are other things then an election campaign going on in Afghanistan, too: The story of "the impoverished relatives of a murdered 16-year-old girl are fighting the wealthy family of an MP [from Bamian province] in Afghan courts in a case that is testing the progress of efforts to bring members of the country's elite within reach of the law." Or as the NYT, in another context wrote, this "seems destined to remind everyone that this is still a country governed by conservative old men, many with checkered pasts".
