A 22-year-old woman in a remote northern region of Afghanistan had her nose cut off by her husband on Monday, January 18. Fawzia Salimi, a hospital director in Maymana, capital of Fayab province, said the victim Reza Gul was brought early Monday morning having lost a great deal of blood.
Gul's husband, Mohammed Khan, 25, has since fled their village. Ms. Salimi said the Afghan-Turk Hospital in Maymana was trying to arranging transport for Ms. Gul to Turkey for further treatment.
Gul's photograph has sparked online anger, with activists demanding punishment for what one called a ‘barbaric act.’
Faryab Governor's spokesman Ahmad Javed Bedar confirmed the incident to AFP. "Mohammad Khan (the husband) cut off Reza Gul's nose with a pocket knife," he said.
The incident highlights the endemic violence against women in Afghan society.
"Such a brutal and barbaric act should be strongly condemned," Kabul-based women's rights activist Alema told AFP.
"Such incidents would not happen if the government judicial system severely punished attacks on women," added Alema, who goes by one name.
It was not immediately clear what prompted the husband to attack Gul, the mother of a one-year-old child who was married off five years ago as a teenager.
Bedar said Khan, an unemployed man, had recently returned from neighbouring Iran and may have joined the Taliban after fleeing home following the attack.

(Photos & video) OMG !!! Man makes his wife walk down the street naked after catching her sending nudes to different men
When you hear of things like this, you think of ultraconservative, patriarchal societies. Stretch your imagination all you want but one particular nation doesn't come to mind. A man in America who caught his wife sending nude pictures and erotic messages made her walk down the street naked while he taped the humiliating affair. What's more, it didn't happen in the religiously conservative south but in liberal New York.
In the disturbing clip, the man trails the visibly shaken woman - who covers her modesty in nothing but a white towel.
As he follows her, he shouts 'she's a tart', 'b****' and 'w****' and berates her for messaging seven other men. As the woman walks down the street in New York, with the towel wrapped round her, he shouts in Spanish: 'Take off your towel! Co-operate b****. Show what you are, so pretty and so great. She's a tart. Let's go. Let's go. Say hi to the camera and say why you're doing this.
'Take off your towel and pay the price for the shame I feel after telling you how pretty you were and that I wanted to start a family with you, but it the meantime you were talking to seven other men.'
The woman retorted: 'But not to have sex with them.'
This only served to anger him further and he scoffed: 'Oh wow, not to have sex! But conversations about kissing, with "love", "babe" and the pictures.'
As she continued to walk away from him, he said: 'Take off your towel. You're going to pay the price like a w****'.
'Since you're a w****, pose like a w****. Damn w****'
'Now the guys you're talking to will see if you're worth it, talking to seven men while I was with you.'
He then ripped the towel from her, leaving her completely naked in the street, apart from a pair of boots.
As she tried to hide between parked cars, he continued to hurl insults at her. She then tried to cover her modesty with the protective sheet for a motorbike.
As she stood with the sheet wrapped round her, he said: 'Now, like that, yes. That's what you're worth.
'Do you really think I'm going to stay with you while you're sending and receiving naked pictures, you damn b****?'
She then replied saying: 'Give me the towel.'
But he refuses, telling her bluntly: 'This is what you deserve.'
Predictably, the video provoked outrage from many people on social media.
One wrote: 'I don't know what she did and I don't care. Nobody deserves to be humiliated [like that].'Another commented: 'Maybe this is just a hint why she was talking to other men...'.

Pictured is a 27-year-old woman, Funke Gbadebo, who has accused her father of “using” her to make money without any benefit for her.
She explained to The Nation yesterday that her father has been giving her out to work for people as maid and collecting her entitlements upfront.
Her father, Najeem Gbadebo, denied to react to her claims, abusing our reporter who called him on phone.
Funke said when her madam realised that she was sad about what her father did; she enrolled her in an hairdressing shop.
She said her suffering began when her father asked her to drop out of school.
“I was in SS2 when I dropped out of school and since then, I have been working for my father. I worked as a maid for five years and when I asked for my pay, I was told my father collected my allowance for the years I spent. Combining hairdressing training wasn’t easy because I woke up at 4am daily to take care of my bosses’ children and sometimes they called in between to send me on errands. It got to a point I felt there was no progress in my life so I left and returned to my father. I had nothing on me when I returned to him. Even the N50,000 my boss gave me when she knew I wasn’t aware of my father’s plans, he collected it from me.”
Now we all know where Instagram model Blac Chyna got most of what she’s got from her mom – Tokyo Toni. Back in the day Toni used to be a very popular stripper and made a few ‘blue films.
Though Toni has since left that lifestyle behind her, but people keep dragging her back in one way or the other. Someone just leaked some very EMBARRASSING videos of Chyna’s mom, doing her thing back in the 90s. Oh boy! She got some ‘ukwu’ Download and watch videos below;
