Afghanistan: Woman beheaded for entering city without husband

A 30-year old woman was beheaded at a small remote village in the Latti in Sar-e-Pul province of Afghanistan after she went shopping in the city market without her husband or any male relative.

The Village of Latti is under Taliban control and a provincial Governor in Afghanistan revealed that the people who murdered her were Taliban fighters.

Under the Taliban rules women are not allowed to go alone to public places without any close male relative accompanying them.

Although her identity is yet to be revealed officials say the reason why the victim went to the market alone was because her husband was away in Iran and they do not have any children.

They haven’t made an arrest yet and the Taliban are denying any involvement in the death of the 30 year old woman.

This story gives me the chills, how very unfortunate. We can only imagine what her family and friends are going through now.
