We drove along Butchers Street in Kabul, as the stripped carcasses of lamb and goat hung on meat hooks swaying in the wind, where gaggles of men argued over prices, and butchers boys heaved the meat onto their backs and delivered them to waiting trucks. At the end of the street, an intersection marked the end of the meat market and the start of a series of colourfully painted buildings. The names of the beauty shops somewhat gave the game away. We pulled over and it was agreed that Sky producer, Dominique van Heerden, would go over and have a peek inside. We had agreed with the owner of one of the salons that Sky News could come and film and interview her, but we were early. The caveat was that only Dominique could go inside. The Taliban have decreed that no men, under any circumstances, can ever go inside the parlours.

On Monday, 11 convicts who were serving life sentences for rape and murder in the case, walked out of prison to a heroes' welcome.
