“On August 16, 2010, The New York Times reported that the Taliban, in Afghanistan, ordered their first public executions by stoning since their fall from power. They stoned a young couple who had eloped. The punishment was carried out by hundreds of the victims’ neighbors in a village in northern Kunduz Province. Family members were involved, both in the stoning and in tricking the couple to return home after they had fled.”
