Taliban execute woman after raping her in front of family: police

...the victim was raped in front of her husband and their three children. She was hanged to death then

In a shocking incident, a woman has been raped in front of her family members by Taliban militants before she was executed in northern Badakhshan province, officials said Saturday.

The incident happened overnight in Wardoj district’s Tirgaran village where Taliban recently seized a key police base.

Lal Muhammad Ahmad Zai, a spokesman for provincial police, explained that the victim was raped in front of her husband and their three children. She was hanged to death then, he added.

It was not immediately clear what provoked the act.

This is a reminder of another rape incident by Taliban militants in Badakhshan. However, the victim in the incident that dated back late last year was not human but animals – cows.

The police base holding scores fell to Taliban over two weeks ago. While the captured policemen were released, government has yet to retake the base.
