Taliban do things their way

Taliban authorities in the western Afghan city of Herat killed four alleged kidnappers and hung their bodies in public to deter others. Herat resident Mohammad Nazir said he had been shopping for food near the city’s Mostofiat Square when he heard a loudspeaker calling for people’s attention. “When I stepped forward, I saw they had brought a body in a pickup truck, then they hung it up on a crane.” The body was hung with a note - “whoever kidnaps others, will end up like this,” on the chest.
