Only in Afghanistan: Student sentenced to death for printing web pageMikey 10 comments
If you ever needed proof that some religious convictions are as moronic as they are dated, look no further than the plight of 23 year old Internet surfer Sayad Parwez Kambaksh.
Kambaksh has been sentenced to death for printing a web page that apparently contained content which violated the tenets of Islam. He took the printout to his teacher and classmates to discuss it, which resulted in a complaint from a US backed Government.
Because Kambaksh's trial was conducted in secret without legal council, the case can now go before two appeals trials until the death sentence is carried out.
