The Women Of Basra

Today "Treasure of Baghdad" has posted an important item about terrorist oppression (including murders) of women in Basra who fail to follow Taliban-style codes of behaviour.

The item contains a link to an Al Jazerra news item of 16 November on the issue. This includes an interview with Houzan Mahmoud of the Organisation of Women's Freedom In Iraq. She gave evidence to "The Iraq Commission" on 12 June. A transcript can be found here.

Thank you, Harry Barnes, for posting the link to the video in a comment on my blog. How very sad and disturbing.

Iraqi Mojo: nice to hear from you, your blog is one of a handful on Iraq which I check out daily. And I recommend it to others.
