Family Holds Funeral For Pregnant Afghan Girl Burned To Death

The family of a pregnant Afghan girl who was burned to death last month has held a funeral for her in Kabul. Fourteen-year-old Zahra's family says she was tortured and set alight by her husband's family in the central province of Ghor. Mourners rode with her body to a makeshift funeral ceremony on August 10, where they demanded punishment for Zahra's husband and his family. (RFE/RL's Radio Free Afghanistan)
