Prominent female journalist shot and killed in Afghanistan

A leading Afghan journalist has been shot and killed in Kabul nearly a week after she expressed fears for her life. Mina Mangal, a former TV presenter, was killed in broad daylight on her way to work Saturday. In a May 2 Facebook post, Mangal said she had been sent threatening messages. Much of Mangal’s work focused on the rights of women to work and girls’ rights to go to school.

Let's hope that this part of the world can soon give women the rights they deserve and that her death won't be in vain.

Sad. In a part of the world where women's rights are actually threatened, this journalist dies. Where's the outcry? But if Trump sends a mean Tweet about CNN that's where we draw the line! Keep her family in your prayers, and watch the media's reaction; they'll probably bury it in a day.
