Saturday, May 21, 2005 - Female Afghan TV host shot dead - May 21, 2005

Clerics criticized her western-friendly style

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- A ground-breaking Afghan television host whose Western style drew praise from youthful fans and condemnation from Muslim clerics may have been slain with involvement from her own brothers, police have said.

Shaima Rezayee, 24, who tossed aside her burqa for Western dress and became a host on an MTV-style music show, knew her life was in danger, according to a radio interview she gave not long before she was shot in the head at her Kabul home Wednesday.


Jamil Khan, head of the criminal investigation department for Kabul police, declined to comment on a possible motive for the killing, but said police would question Rezayee's two brothers after mourning ceremonies conclude early next week.

"We suspect family members may be involved in the murder," he said. He didn't elaborate and relatives could not be immediately reached for comment.

What a brave young woman!
