Kabul:  An Afghan official says that Taliban militants have stoned a man and a woman accused of adultery to death.

Salim Sallhe, spokesman for the governor of Logar province, said the incident happened on Sunday in a remote area of the Mohammad Agha district where the government does not hold authority. Sallhe says a preliminary police investigation says the stoning did not take place in public.

 

Elsewhere in northern Sari Pul province, officials say Taliban militants killed three women and a young boy who were accused of spying.

Zabiullah Amani, the spokesman for the provincial governor, said the victims were accused of providing the government with information from inside Taliban held territory. Taliban Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid had no comment on the two reports.
