According to local authorities in eastern Ghazni province of Afghanistan, Taliban militants hanged an Afghan man to death at Qarabagh district over kidnapping charges.
Provincial governor spokesman Fazal Sabawoon confirming the report said the accused Afghan man who was hanged to death had recently abducted an Afghan child and urged his family to pay for his freedom.
Mr. Sabawoon further added Taliban militants arrested the kidnapper five days back and asked the tribal elders to sentence the accused man for his crime.
