Taliban Hangs 15 Year old For Having U.S. Money

(Hat Tip: Cyber Crusader)

The religion of "peace" strikes again in Afghanistan. Taliban militants hanged a teenager for possessing U.S. dollars:

Taliban militants hanged a teenager in southern Afghanistan because he had U.S. money in his pocket, and they stuffed five $1 bills in his mouth as a warning to others not to use dollars, police said Monday. Taliban militants elsewhere killed eight police.

The 15-year-old boy was hanged from a tree on Sunday in Helmand, the most violent province in the country and the world's No. 1 poppy-growing region.

"The Taliban warned villagers that they would face the same punishment if they were caught with dollars," said Wali Mohammad, the district police chief in Sangin.

So much for Muslim claims that Islam forbids the killings of women and children...
