MAZAR-I-SHARIF, May 31, 2012:
Family members and human rights activists on Thursday asked the government to investigate physical abuse of a married girl whose tongue was cut off by her husband in northern Balkh province.
Women Affairs Department officials said the accused, Saleh Mohammad, who had been arrested, cut off tongue of his pregnant wife, Nagina, on Wednesday after she refused to have a bizarre sexual act with him.
