Ad Feedback

The Taliban is targeting a second young girl in Pakistan known her women's rights activism and pro-education stance.

Hina Khan, 16, returned home from school this week to find a red "X" painted on the gate of her family's home.

Khan's mother, Farhat, then received a phone call warning her that her daughter is the Taliban's next target.

Just two weeks ago, another school girl, Malala Yousafzai, was shot on a school bus on her way home from school. Yousafzai survived the attack, and is recovering in a hospital in Britain.

Khan is originally from the Swat Valley, the same area of Pakistan that Yousafzai is from. The Swat Valley was under complete Taliban control for years.

Locals say terrorist cells are reactivating their networks in the valley, taking advantage of the U.S. military's decision to withdraw forces.
