Taliban stoned to death a nineteen year old girl

The Taliban stoned to death nineteen year old Rokhshana in Afghanistan for attempting to leave a forced marriage and elope with another man.


Authorities said that  Rokhshana was arrested and executed in a Taliban controlled area.


Video footage believed to be recorded one week ago showed a Rokhshana buried up to  her neck in a pit surrounded by a large group of men who threw stones at her one by one.


Several onlookers could be seen capturing images of the horrific incident on their cellphones.


Rokhshana could be heard throughout the footage screaming out in agonizing pain.


According to local reports, Rokhshana was forcibly engaged to an older man in Ghor. She attempted to runway to marry the person she had actually fallen in love with.


While both Rokhshana and the man were arrested, he was given a flogging for his punishment.
