Taliban kill two women in Kohat

Is it the kind of Shariah which Imran Khan is promising this nation?

PESHAWAR: The Taliban on Friday killed two burqa-clad women in Kohat district and dumped the bodies by a roadside, officials said. It was not immediately clear who had killed the women, but a local security official said the Taliban were most likely responsible. Police official Riaz Khan said the slain women had a ‘bad reputation’ and were warned by people about a year ago to abandon their ‘immoral ways’. The bullet-riddled bodies of the women, about 25 and 40 years old, were dumped on a roadside. Kohat borders the restive town of Hangu and Bajaur Agency, a flashpoint for sectarian and Taliban violence. afp (Daily Times, 14 Feb 2009)
