Taliban forces in Afghanistan publicly exhibited the bodies of a group of kidnappers who had been assassinated after they supposedly kidnapped two people in the city of Herat, located in the west of the country.
In information collected by CNN, a journalist claimed that a group of four men had kidnapped a merchant with his son in recent days, which generated the reaction of the Taliban.
The country’s power group was able to free the merchant along with his son and proceeded to kill the kidnappers. After this, one of the bodies was exposed in a square in the town, while the other three were taken to different points where the Taliban were seen walking around the hanged bodies, the journalist said next to another source.
Shir Ahmed Ummar Muhajir, who serves as deputy governor of Herat, told a local journalist that four people had been killed, and an armed member of the Islamic Emirate was injured after the clash.
Broadcast images of the incident showed a man hanging from a crane in the central square, and the crowd gathered to see the bodya witness reported to CNN.
Likewise, a student and activist pointed out that the kidnappers “They had been shot during the operation and then hanged for people to take a lesson.”
