Taliban militants hang Afghan woman, son

By AMIR SHAH, Associated Press Writer 46 minutes ago

KABUL, Afghanistan - Suspected Taliban militants hanged a woman and her son from a tree after accusing them of spying for the government, while fighting between supporters of rival warlords in northwestern
Afghanistan killed four people, officials said Wednesday.

The 70-year-old woman and her 30-year-old son were killed Monday in the village of Daigh, about five miles north of Musa Qala in the southern province of Helmand, said Amir Mohammad Akhunzada, the province's deputy governor.

Akhunzada did not identify the two but said the woman's son-in-law worked for the police. After the slaying, the militants threatened to kill anyone working for the government, he said.

"This hanging is totally against Islam," Akhunzada said. "They use the name of Islam to go against Islam."
