Afghan Police promise justice for Taliban stoning
Kabul: Afghan Police has promised that it will bring to justice the men who stoned a couple to death in north Afghanistan.
The man and woman were accused of adultery in the district of Dashte Archi in Kunduz province last August. Hundreds of people attended the stoning but no one was charged.
The area is still under Taliban control.
After viewing the footage, regional police chief Gen Daoud Daoud said those responsible could be recognised.
"Special police investigators will be sent there, we will find them and they will be brought to justice," he told the BBC.
Afghan and NATO officials have seen a mobile phone recording of the killings. Most of the video is too graphic to be shown.
