Taleban hang 7-year-old boy to punish family
Jerome Starkey, Kandahar
A seven-year-old boy was executed by the Taleban in a brutal act of retribution this week, after his grandfather dared to resist the insurgencys iron rule.
Afghan officials said the boy was accused of spying for US and Nato forces and hanged from a tree in southern Afghanistan.
Daoud Ahmadi, the spokesman for Helmands provincial governor, said the murder came just days after the boys grandfather, Abdul Woodod Alokozai, spoke out against militants in their hometown.
I know his father and I know his grandfather, Mr Ahmadi said. His grandfather is a tribal elder in the village and the village is under the control of the Taleban. His grandfather said some good things about the government and he formed a small group of people to stand against the Taleban.
Thats why the Taleban killed his grandson in revenge.
The attack happened in Heratiyan village, in Sangin district, close to where insurgents shot down an American Pave Hawk helicopter yesterday, killing all four crew.
The helicopter was swooping low over the Taleban infested town to suppress attacks on a grounded air ambulance, which was busy loading British casualties on board.
The killing of children to punish their parents has chilling echoes of western mafia-style violence. Under Pashtunwali, the complex and ancient honour code of the Pashtuns, it is likely to spawn generations of vendettas and blood letting.
Asked about the attack at a press conference, President Hamid Karzai, said he didnt know if the Taleban had been involved.
The Taleban denied any involvement. They also denied attacking a wedding party in Kandahar yesterday which left at least 40 people dead and more than 80 others seriously wounded.
Both incidents have drawn fierce condemnation from Afghan and international officials.

This sounds strange-—even for the Taliban. Why wouldn’t they just go after the old man?
Well, that’ll stop the spying for sure.
“chilling echoes of western-style mafia violence...”
Yeah, I get it, we’re just as bad as those Muzzies...no bias here.
“The killing of children to punish their parents has chilling echoes of western mafia-style violence.”
Good grief. When did the mafia start murdering 7-year-olds?
Ya. That pesky little kid.
Don’t watch the video unless you have a strong stomach because it will probably make you violently ill.
It proves the depravity of Izlum and the Mullahs.
It’s worse than hanging a seven year old.
Ahhh, the religion of peace.
Islam is a plague of biblical proportions. It is a religion that produces savagery in human beings. Savagery and base stupidity are it’s fruits. Only the worst of humanity could elevate the words of Mohamed to the status of a world religion.
Because they want to send a message to the people that they will kill anyone, even children, that get in their way.
Same message they were sending by executing women in a soccer stadium not that long ago.
When the mafia wants you to toe the line, they break your kneecaps; they don't hang your 7 year old.
I await correction on this point.......
Yeah...I guess you’re right. Something similar occurred to me after I hit the post button.
Diabolical. But to the left the USA, especially in the Bush era, was the purveyor of hate and evil in the world. I could vomit.
Sorry, the mafia doesn't murder 7 year olds.
Only evil sub human vermin do things like that.
Anybody who does something like this is sub-human. If caught they need to be skinned alive. I would be interested in hearing what these leftist idiots here in America who love to suck up to Muslims would have to say about this.
WOW!!! I love that description. It is entirely accurate.
Usually they gut the kid pack him with explosives so the family dies when they retrieve the body.
Coming here thanks to Great Religion Bush and zippy Blue lips Obama.
