Women's Issues: Taliban warn male doctors not to conduct ultrasound on females

The Daily Times has reported that the Taliban movement in Miramshah, capital of North Waziristan, has issued a diktat warning male doctors from carrying out ultrasound tests on female patients.

In a pamphlet from the "North Waziristan Mujahideen", the militia demanded the appointment of female for carrying out such medical procedures.

It said it would punish anyone found guilty of violating its order.
