Weekend irony: Taliban urge UN to stop Afghan executions

The Taliban did not run shy of dispensing instant justice during its rule in Afghanistan — public executions in stadia were the norm. Here is a video of one such execution at Kabul in 1999. Now, when the boot is on the other foot, this is the official response from the Taliban.

“We strongly request the UN, the EU, the Red Cross and human rights groups to earnestly prevent this barbaric act,” the Taliban said in a statement on their website.[Dawn]
