Local police commander Saleh Mohammad told the BBC she was killed when “hundreds of locals and passersby attacked her with stones and sticks”.
Witnesses say her body was then set on fire. Four suspects have been arrested but the woman has not been identified.
The killing is thought to be the first incident of its kind in Afghanistan.
(I’m gonna call bullish*t on that one. First one of it’s kind this morning in that part of town maybe. Why after all, did the US go after the Taliban anyway? Other than Bin Laden)
