The Taliban-style intimidation of Afghan newspapers came to the surface after a journalist was sentenced to death for distributing an article deemed to have "insulted Islam".
There was no lawyer representing this young man at his trial which was held in secret. Some think this is not about this man but about shutting up his brother who is also a journalist. The brother has written reports on atrocities committed by senior politicians in northern Afghanistan.
