MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan — For years, Rasool Landay went from place to place in northern Afghanistan, offering a very specialized and in-demand service: treatment for women unable to have children.
Now he is on the run.
Religious scholars and public officials have demanded his public execution. A provincial governor has offered his own armored vehicle as a reward for information.
Officials in Faryab Province say the man known as Mullah Landay — who, despite passing himself off as an Islamic cleric, had no religious credentials — led an extortion ring targeting women.
