Taliban terrorists hung a dead man’s body from a crane in the middle of the street on Saturday in one of Afghanistan’s largest cities, sparking fears that the regime’s brutality was already back less than a month after they took over the country.
A store owner in Herat told the Associated Press that the Taliban brought four bodies to the main square, displaying one there and moving the other three to various parts of the city for public viewing. The Taliban claimed that the men who they killed were involved in a kidnapping and that they were all killed during a gun fight.
Footage of the bloodstained corpse, swinging on the crane was widely shared on social media, showing a note pinned to the man’s chest saying “This is the punishment for kidnapping.”
Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) responded to the event by posting a photograph of one of the hangings, writing: “America needs to see and understand what brutal terrorist thugs we are dealing with…and that their violence will follow us home.”
