A man and a woman have been stoned to death in Afghanistan’s north-eastern Badakhshan province, for having illegal Sexual relations.

Two local Taliban officials confirmed this on Wednesday.

 Taliban official in the province told dpa that they were stoned at a sharia court.

Muslim men and women were not allowed to have sexual intercourse outside marriage under sharia law.

It also states that if a married man has sex with a married woman and there were four witnesses, the couple should be stoned.

“They have confessed that they had illegal relations and they had done this two to three times,” the local official said.

Muezuddin Ahmadi, who is in charge of the province’s information and culture department, said that the issue was under investigation and promised serious action against the perpetrators of the stoning.

The Taliban are fighting for recognition on the international stage after having seized power in August, partly in a bid to access aid funds and money stashed abroad.

In spite of assurances that they will respect human rights, many lower-ranking officers have meted out gruesome punishments in recent months.

Local newspaper Hasht-e Subh reported that the stoning took place publicly on Monday in the Nasi district of the province.
