Taliban publicly execute woman in AfghanistanAugust 9th, 2010 - 8:18 pm ICT by IANS
Kabul, Aug 9 (IANS) Taliban militants publicly flogged and then shot dead a 48-year-old widow for alleged adultery in Afghanistan, a media report said Monday.
The woman was given dozens of lashes before being shot dead Sunday in Qades district of Badghis province, Geo TV reported.
“It happened before the public … despite that no one has complained, the government will take its own measures about the incident,” said Abdul Jabar, an official with the provincial government.
Her alleged partner with whom she had an affair, escaped.
During the Taliban regime, 1996-2001, the radical Islamists resorted to stoning or flogging to punish those who were found to have sex outside marriage.
A Taliban spokesman said he had no information about the incident.
