CNN reports, this past Friday an 8-year-old boy was hanged by militants in Kabul, Afghanistan. It comes days after the boy’s father refused to give them a police vehicle, per their demands. They kidnapped the officers son and hanged him, when angered by his resistance.
President Hamid Karzai condemned the hanging and ordered local authorities to find the militants responsible for his death, and arrest them “as soon as possible.”
It is appalling that desperate men can hang a harmless child over their militant views.
