Tajik President Plays Matchmaker For Young Supporter


When a young Tajik teacher recited poems of praise for the country's autocratic president, he had no idea that the leader would respond by arranging his marriage. Within days, a village committee had located a suitable bride for the teacher and planned a wedding sponsored by the government. But the future bride had her own conditions to fulfill before she agreed to the proposal. (RFE/RL's Tajik Service)
