Frightening pictures surfaced once again Taliban’s Violent Rule.
Afghanistan’s new rulers on Saturday hung a man killed earlier on a crane – and placed him on public display in the central square of the western Afghan city of Herat.
Afghan broadcaster Ariana News reported that three other dead, who were accused of being held hostage, were also publicly hung in other parts of the city as a deterrent.
The names of the crimes allegedly committed by them are placed around the necks of the dead.
On Friday, Taliban co-founder Mullah Nooruddin Turabi announced the return of extreme punishment such as amputation of arms and legs and hanging.
