Afghan Woman Stoned to Death for Spending Time with Non-Relative

The young woman attempted to leave the country with the man but was caught and stoned to death for violating strict Islamic law imposed by the Taliban which states that a woman found with a man not in her family faces the death penalty.

Under the Talibanís extremist rule, women are not allowed to work, attend school, or spend anytime out of the house unless they wear an all-enveloping burqa
