Taliban ‘Behead Female Volleyball Player, Shares Graphic Images Across Social Media’




Taliban officials have beheaded a young woman and uploaded the graphics images on social media.

According to reports, a highly-rated player named, Mahjabin with the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club, was slaughtered by jihadists.

The Persian Independent in an interview accused the fundamentalists of sharing images of her corpse online.

The Taliban who does not permit women to play sport under their rule had killed the girl earlier this month.

Her death was only now being reported because the coach claims the family were subjected to threats from Islamist militants if they spoke out.

Coach Suraya Afzali says she was captured having failed to escape Afghanistan after the collapse of the previous government.

But conflicting reports on social media said she was mysteriously killed a week before the Taliban returned to power.

“All the players of the volleyball team and the rest of the women athletes are in a bad situation and they are in despair and live in fear,” he said in the interview.

“Everyone has been forced to flee and live in unknown places.”

The new all-male Taliban government was formed earlier this year, with women excluded.
