Frontline delays "Dancing Boys" documentary

Frontline has delayed its Dancing Boys of Afghanistan documentary due to concerns over the safety of a boy in the film, Broadcasting & Cable reports. It's about the custom of "Bacha Bareesh," in which boys are sold to men who keep them as concubines. In the film, an Afghan journalist infiltrated one of the rings and spoke with several boys and their "masters." It was schedule for Jan. 19; a repeat of A Death in Tehran will air instead.
