Lady Killers: Meet the Women Fighting the Taliban in Pakistan

NOWSHERA, Pakistan — Explosions and the rat-tat-tat of automatic weapons ring out as commandos clutching rifles dash across the field.

It could be any military training ground in the world — but the fluttering black niqabs covering the fighters’ faces are out of place, especially in this ultra-conservative corner of northwest Pakistan.


The situation she and her peers face in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa reflects a nationwide battle against terrorism. More than 50,000 people have died in terror-related violence in Pakistan since 2002.

With 1,100 police killed in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa alone over that period, the local government decided to mirror moves taken in other provinces and draft in elite female commandos.
