Afghan pop star Aryana Sayeed defiant despite threats

Hundreds of people in Kabul turned out to hear the Afghan pop star Aryana Sayeed perform on Saturday, despite threats from conservatives.

The concert, a rare event in the city, was held amid tight security to mark Independence Day, but clerics said it was against Afghan culture.

Sayeed told the BBC she was determined to perform.
