Isaq tops state radio/TV network

World Brief

The government has appointed Mohammed Isaq to head the state radio and television network, replacing Abdul Hafiz Mansoor, who was dismissed last week.

Isaq, like Mansoor, is a member of the Northern Alliance, which played a key role in ousting the Taliban regime last fall. The Taliban had outlawed television and allowed only a rudimentary radio service.

Mansoor lost his job because of complaints about the quality of programs. He also was criticized for refusing to allow women to sing on air.
