Taliban publicly whips two in Sar-e-Pul

The Taliban’s supreme court announced Saturday that two men were publicly whipped for committing alleged “immorality”.

In a statement, the court detailed that one individual received 29 lashes and a six-month prison sentence. The second person was subjected to 15 lashes and sentenced to three months in prison.

This incident adds to the hundreds of public whippings carried out by the Taliban against individuals accused of various crimes. On Thursday, the Taliban publicly executed two people, prompting reactions from the United Nations and human rights organizations, including Amnesty International, which called for an immediate halt to these public executions.
