Afghan female lawmaker vows to continue hunger strike

Simeen Barakzai, who began her hunger strike eight days ago, refused to be taken to a hospital or to take a glucose drip, even though a doctor told the French news agency that her health is entering a critical condition.

Barakzai is one of nine members of parliament removed from their seats in August by Afghanistan's Independent Election Commission, which is trying to resolve long-running allegations of voter fraud against some winners of a 2010 parliamentary vote.  Some lawmakers who boycotted parliament to protest the expulsions returned to their seats on Saturday.
