The death of Nadia Anjuman

Afghan poet Nadia Anjuman, who under the Taliban regime was involved in the 'Sewing Circles of Herat' when not yet out of her teens, was beaten to death last week at the age of 25.

Two people have been arrested over her death: her husband -- and her mother.

She leaves a six-month-old daughter and her first and only completed book of poems, Gol-e-dodi, or Dark Red Flower.

'My wings are closed and I cannot fly.'
