Eight year old boy hanged by Afghan militants


An eight year old boy is reported to have been hanged by militants in Afghanistan after his father refused to provide them with a police vehicle.

The killing was condemned by President Hamid Karzai who said “this action is not permitted in any culture or any religions,”

Karzai has ordered local authorities to root out the militants and arrest them “as soon as possible.”

The boy was kidnapped Friday.  It was unclear when he was killed.
