Afghan leader accused of bid to 'legalise rape' - The Independent
Afghanistan's President, Hamid Karzai, has signed a law which "legalises" rape, women's groups and the United Nations warn. Critics claim the president helped rush the bill through parliament in a bid to appease Islamic fundamentalists ahead of elections in August.

In a massive blow for women's rights, the new Shia Family Law negates the need for sexual consent between married couples, tacitly approves child marriage and restricts a woman's right to leave the home, according to UN papers seen by The Independent.


So much for progress in Afghanistan.  We went in there supposedly to get rid of Taliban influence and lo and behold, the restore Sharia again.
