Woman beaten to death, burned for setting fire to Koran
By Sasha Goldstein, From New York Daily News:
The crowd of dozens moved in and killed the woman after the incident Thursday near the Shah-e Doh Shamshira shrine, witnesses told Radio Free Afghanistan.
Disturbing video of the incident shows the angry mob beat the woman with fists, kicks, sticks and bricks – at one point even dropping her from a roof – until she stopped moving. Her body was burned by the vigilantes and later thrown into the Kabul River, General Farid Afzali told Agence France-Presse.
“We were watching this incident. She burned the Koran,” one eyewitness told Radio Free Afghanistan.“A lot of people gathered around the spot,” he added. “They burned her.”
