Taliban cuts off voters fingers

Reporting from Kabul, Afghanistan - The shadowy threat circulated in city streets and village bazaars in the days before Afghanistan's historic presidential vote: The Taliban would cut off the ink-stained fingers of those who had cast a ballot.

On Saturday, election observers disclosed that they had confirmed two such cases in the south of Afghanistan, and were investigating a third in an eastern province.

Two finger amputations took place in Kandahar province, where the Taliban movement was born. Officials asked that the district not be disclosed because it would endanger the observer who reported the grisly acts. The case under investigation was in a province bordering Pakistan's volatile tribal areas, where many insurgent groups are based.

The victims were attacked by insurgents soon after voting Thursday in presidential and provincial assembly elections, said Nader Nadery, who heads the Free and Fair Election Foundation of Afghanistan, the country's premier domestic election-monitoring group. No further details about the attack were disclosed. The telltale indelible purple ink is used to prevent voter fraud....

Thumbs down

Is this real?

This is very scary because it's unfair and since the people out there are helpless, why can't someone step in to prevent mass murders and unfair practices?

Will all this lead to another war, and will that solve anything at all?

Yes, it's real! And it's only a tactic used to sway the vote in favor of the Taliban.

These are heathen peoples, not modern societies. They still live in the Dark Ages.

The fact that they get away with it shows that the people are not willing to fight back against this kind of treatment and only emboldens the Taliban to continue.

Until they change their beliefs, there will be no change for the better for any of them.

It only shows that the Taliban don't want another government to rule them except for themselves....
