Adéu a Nihil Obstat | Hola a The Catalan Analyst

Després de 13 anys d'escriure en aquest bloc pràcticament sense interrumpció, avui el dono per clausurat. Això no vol dir que m'hagi jubilat de la xarxa, sinó que he passat el relleu a un altra bloc que segueix la mateixa línia del Nihil Obstat. Es tracta del bloc The Catalan Analyst i del compte de Twitter del mateix nom: @CatalanAnalyst Us recomano que els seguiu.

Moltes gràcies a tots per haver-me seguit amb tanta fidelitat durant tots aquests anys.

La "cultura" taliban

Ataquen amb àcid unes noies de l'Afganistan perquè anaven a l'escola.


Attackers in Afghanistan have sprayed acid in the faces of at least 15 girls near a school in Kandahar, police say. They say that the attack happened shortly before at least six people were killed in a bomb blast near a government building in the city.

Doctors say that the six girls were wearing Islamic burkas or veils which provided them with some protection. Correspondents say the attack is likely to have been carried out by those opposed to the education of women.

A spokesman for the Taleban denied involvement in the attack. The former Taleban government - ousted from power in 2001 - banned girls from attending school.
