AFGHANISTAN: OFFICIALS SAY TALIBAN KILL 6 MEMBERS OF SAME FAMILY

January 20, 2020:

Afghan officials said on 19 January 2020 that the Taliban executed six members of the same family, including an infant girl, in a remote village in the country's north.
The Taliban denied any involvement, saying the attack on 18 January was triggered by a personal dispute.
However, local Afghan officials said the family was accused by the Taliban of working in prostitution. The insurgents sentenced them to death for immoral acts, then stormed the house and opened fire, according to Jawed Bedar, a spokesman for Faryab province's governor.
The infant girl's mother and twin sister survived, but both of the child's legs had to be amputated, the spokesman said.
He said Afghan security forces deployed to the village early 19 January and helped evacuate the two survivors to the hospital.
He said the Taliban attacked the government troops when they arrived. The ensuing gunbattle killed three Taliban members, who Bedar said were involved in the family's killing.
The Taliban control the village in Andkhoy district where the killings took place, making it difficult to accurately determine what happened, he added.
Locals in the area also disputed the accounts of prostitution. Instead, they claimed that a member of the slain family was a former Taliban militant who recently joined the peace process, according to Andkhoy district chief Sultan Mohammad Sanjer.
