Afghan Poet Nadia Anjuman Beaten to Death

Prominent poet Nadia Anjuman was beaten to death by her husband and her mother is suspected of having a role in her death.

"The United Nations condemned the killing Tuesday as symptom of continuing violence against Afghan women four years after the fall of the Taliban."

I have created a tribute page for Nadia Anjuman at www.thehypertexts.com (in the Contemporary Poets section). The page has a quite striking picture of Nadia and is, I believe, the most comprehensive page about her on the Internet.
