Taliban Threatens Teen Activist

As Malala Yousafzai fights for her life, another Pakistani teen activist says the Taliban has threatened her for promoting girls’ education. Hina Khan, who is believed to be 16, claims that someone painted a red "X" on her family’s house and made death threats. “My parents received a death threat saying that I’m next on their target list. I may not be able to continue my education anymore because of the threats that I might be kidnapped or killed like Malala,” Khan said. And the family’s requests for protection have been denied. Khan’s father said, “We went to the police and they told us to arrange security for ourselves.”
