Afghan man sought in wife’s death
Woman had given birth to couple’s second daughter
An Afghan woman has been strangled, apparently by her husband, who was upset that she gave birth to a second daughter rather than the son he wanted, police said yesterday. It was the latest in a series of grisly examples of subjugation of women that have made headlines in Afghanistan in the past few months. The episodes have raised the question of what will happen to the push for women’s rights in Afghanistan as the international presence here shrinks.
