Burqa women launch 'morality' crackdown from Red Mosque

Groups of young baton-wielding, burqa-clad women who have launched a crackdown against the city's perceived immorality.

Their latest target were six Chinese masseuses, alleged to be working as prostitutes, who were kidnapped and "re-educated" last weekend ...

In recent weeks, students from the mosque's two seminaries or madrassas - one for young women and one for young men - have been threatening shopkeepers and stores selling DVDs and videos. Previously, a group of covered female students, many armed with Kalashnikov rifles, took over a public library in protest against the government of General Musharraf.
