Protest In Kabul As Newspaper Editor Arrested For Blasphemy

In the Afghan capital, Kabul, a small but vocal protest was held against an English-language newspaper which published an article questioning the existence of God and attacking the Islamic faith. The newspaper, the Afghanistan Express Daily, has issued an apology for the article – saying it was published due to a technical error. But the owner and chief editor has been arrested on blasphemy charges. (RFE/RL's Radio Free Afghanistan)
