Sharia in the Swat valley

Several days ago the Pakistani government reached an agreement allowing the Swat valley to come under Taliban rule - an area that had voted overwhelmingly against them. Here's an account of what's it's now like for the women who live there - stories as horrifying as those that came out of Afghanistan when the Taliban took over there.

The Swat valley is less than two hundred miles from Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan. This development is really, really bad news. (Thanks to Jihad Watch.)
