The Taliban will bring back executions and the amputation of hands as a form of punishment.
The Taliban will bring back executions and the amputation of hands as a form of punishment, one of the militant group's founders Mullah Nooruddin Turabi told the Associated Press in an interview published Thursday.
The grisly reprisals won't always take place in public, but Turabi cautioned the world against interference with Afghanistan's new governing force.
During that rule, executions and amputations were held at Kabul's sports stadium and sometimes in front of crowds, the report said.
The Taliban regained control of Afghanistan in August for the first time since 2001.
And the interim government established by the Taliban does not include women, but does include people on the UN sanctions list.
There has been particular concern in the international community over what Taliban rule will mean for Afghan women and girls. »
