1972 – 2007

Afghani teacher and journalist both owned her own radio station and had been the voice of the US set-up radio station Radio Peace since 2001. She had openly criticised the warlords from her area and their behaviour. She received death threats throughout her career and in 2007 gun men broke into her home in Kabul and shot her. Her death came four days after the murder of the young news reader Shakiba Sanga.

Both murders remain unsolved.
