. Female journalist flees Afghanistan following groundbreaking TV interview with Taliban spokesman « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CNN- Earlier this month, Beheshta Arghand made history in Afghanistan. Arghand, a female anchor at TOLO, an Afghan news network, interviewed a senior Taliban representative on the air.

Two days later, Arghand did it again, interviewing Malala Yousafzai, the activist who survived a Taliban assassination attempt, in what TOLO described as the first time Yousafzai had ever been interviewed on Afghan TV.
Arghand was blazing a trail, but her work has been put on hold. She decided to leave Afghanistan, citing the dangers that so many journalists and ordinary Afghans are facing.
