The hearing was presided over by Chief Justice Noor Mohammad Saqib[?] and 18 other judges. One of the six female defendants was wearing the head-to-toe cloak which is mandatory for Afghan women in public, while the others had veils over their hair only. The defendents walked slowly into the court under the escort of armed guards, who did not allow them to answer questions from journalists waiting outside the court.
