Taliban carry out first public execution in Afghanistan since seizing power

Afghan authorities on Wednesday executed an Afghan man convicted of killing a man five years ago and stealing his motorcycle and cell phone, a Taliban spokesman said.

Those in power in Afghanistan intend to continue to apply the tough policies implemented since they returned to power in August last year.

Remember that in the 1990s, when the Taliban were in power, they carried out public executions, flagellations and stonings.

The execution took place in Farah province and hundreds of people attended the sentence, including senior Taliban officials, including those from Kabul and the province, according to Zabihullah, the highest spokesman for the Taliban government.
