Taliban hang 7-year-old boy to punish family

A seven-year-old boy was murdered by the Taliban in an apparent act of retribution this week.

Daoud Ahmadi, the spokesman for the provincial governor of Helmand: … “His grandfather is a tribal elder in the village and the village is under the control of the Taliban. His grandfather said some good things about the Government and he formed a small group of people to stand against the Taliban. That’s why the Taliban killed his grandson in revenge.”

Qari Yousef Ahmaid, Taleban spokesman:… “We never kill children. Everyone knows a seven-year-old can’t be a spy.”
