Police: Afghan Girl Beheaded
A twenty-year-old Afghan girl was beheaded after refusing to sleep with a man who was not her husband, provincial police told the Agence France-Presse. The young woman’s mother-in-law, father-in-law, husband, and alleged killer have all been arrested in connection with the killing. According to local police chief Abdul Ghafar Sayedzada, the girl’s mother-in-law tried to make the girl engage in prostitution multiple times before allegedly luring a man in to kill her. The story comes amidst international outcry over the Taliban shooting of Pakistani teen Malala Yousafzai.
