A man and a woman who allegedly committed adultery, were stoned to death in a village controlled by the Taliban in Afghanistan.
The barbaric act is the latest in a string of archaic sentences handed down by the Taliban, which practices a strict adherence to Islamic law.
The couple, both in their 20s, had their hands tied behind their backs and stood in a field; as several people among 100 local villagers threw rocks at them until they died.
The man, 28, was married, while the woman, 23, was engaged. The couple allegedly confessed to having had an affair with one another.
Wow! I guess all of the adulterers in the United States should be lucky that this isn’t the law of this land. Even a stoning by “tongue lashing” is less painful I’m sure.
