Video shows Afghan woman’s ‘Taliban execution’

A video has emerged showing the public killing of a woman after her alleged conviction by an informal Taliban court of killing her husband.

The video was shot in Jowzjan Province a month or two ago, officials say, and has just surfaced on social media.

A crowd listens as the verdict is given before the woman, sitting on the ground in a burqa, is shot in the back of the head. The Taliban have not commented.
