Taliban executes 2 convicted persons in football stadium

Taliban authorities publicly executed two men convicted of murder in a football stadium in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday.

Thousands of people gathered in the stadium to witness the executions.

Both men were executed by multiple gunshots to the back in Ghazni city after Supreme Court official Atiqullah Darwish read aloud a death warrant signed by Taliban Supreme Leader Hibatullah Akhundzada.

Families of the convicted men's victims were present, including women and children, and were asked if they wanted to grant the condemned a last-minute reprieve, but they declined in both cases.
