This month the Taliban also reportedly flogged and killed a pregnant widow in western Baghdis province.


“We were also asked to throw stones, the woman was dead but the man was still alive. Some Taliban shot him three times ”


Mohammad Ayub, the governor of Imam Sahib district in Kunduz, told the BBC on Monday: "The Taliban brought them to the local bazaar.


"They stoned them because they were accused of adultery. There was a big crowd of people who watched.''


Two witnesses from Mullah Quli told the BBC that the Taliban asked the villagers to attend the stoning through an announcement on loudspeakers in the mosque.


"There was a big crowd of people," one witness said. "The Taliban made the women wear black clothes and the men were made to stand. The Taliban started throwing stones.
"We were also asked to throw stones. After a while, the Taliban left. The woman was dead but the man was still alive.
