In different parts of the city of Herat, “to alert all criminals” are displayed four alleged bodies of arrest, one of which hangs from a crane.
The Taliban have unearthed four bodies of alleged hijackers, one of which was hung from a crane in Herat Square in Afghanistan, and one of the commanders said it was intended to deter “criminals”.
Mohammad Nazir, a resident, said he was eating at Herat’s Mostofiat Square on Saturday when he heard a loudspeaker urging people to pay attention.
“As I walked forward, I saw that they had brought a corpse in a pickup truck and then hung it on a crane,” Reuters quoted him as saying.
Taliban officials first brought four bodies to the central square of the western city of Herat, then moved three to other parts of the city for public display.
Taliban officials say four people were arrested during a siege on Saturday and killed by police, Seddick said.
A video from the Associated Press shows a crowd gathering around a crane to look at the body while some men chanted.
“The purpose of this operation is to warn all criminals that they are not safe,” the Taliban commander, who did not identify himself, told the Associated Press in an interview with a camera in the square.
In Herat, Taliban-appointed police chief Ya Yaulhak Ala Alali said members of the Taliban had rescued a father and son abducted by four kidnappers after an exchange of gunfire.
He said a Taliban fighter and a civilian had been wounded by the kidnappers and that the kidnappers had been killed by crossfire.
After the Taliban took control of Kabul on August 15, Afghans and the world wondered if they would regain their tough power in the late 1990s, which included the public stoning and amputation of alleged criminals, some of whom took place in large crowds in the stadium. forward:
Mullah Nuruddin Turabi, one of the founders of the Taliban movement, its chief executive in Afghanistan since the 1990s, told the AP this week that the militant movement would again carry out executions and amputations, though perhaps not publicly.
“Everyone criticized us for the punishment in the stadium, but we never said anything about their laws, their sanctions,” Turabi said. he said. “No one will tell us what our laws should be like. “We will follow Islam and enact our laws on uranium.”
The group leaders continue to be deeply rooted in a hard-line, conservative worldview, even as they embrace technological change such as video and cell phones.
President Biden’s administration on Friday signaled that the United States would not tolerate the return of the Taliban to their previous sanctions.
“We strongly condemn reports of Afghan beheadings and the resumption of executions,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters.
“The actions that the Taliban are talking about here will be gross human rights abuses. We stand with the international community to bring to justice the perpetrators of this or that abuse.”
