The two were held after they staged a protest in Karze County on Jan 18,2008, and were sentenced to two and two-and-half-year jail terms, respectively. Despite heavy security at the nunnery, the two managed to leave it to hold the protest by showing to the security people medical checkup notes they have obtained earlier.
