Dancing girl killed in Pakistan by Taliban

My good friend Diane (the one who's trying to save Hollywood Park) forwarded a link to this chilling Jan. 12 article about the death of Shabana, a traditional dancer in Pakistan. The Mail Online article by Jane Bunce says this:

"Shabana reportedly paid the price for publicly defying the Taliban's radio mullahs, ignoring personal warnings to stop performing and training young dancers."

I was surprised, too. I didn't realize this sort of thing was happening in Pakistan.
