Taliban attacks voters and cuts fingers off them

  • Recent voting in Afghanistan was violent since the Taliban attacked over 50 voters and mutilated about 12 more. Reports indicate that militants cut the fingers off 11 voters in order to punish them for going against the warning and voting. 

    "These ordinary Afghans were exercising their fundamental right to determine the future path of their country through voting and not through violence and intimidation," the UN mission said. By their votes they already thwarted the plans of those who spread fear and violence.

    Media notes that final results of the presidential run-off poll will be released next month.
