Ad Feedback

The Taliban in Afghanistan hanged a seven-year-old boy after accusing him of being a spy.

The London Daily Mail reported the Taliban took the child from his home in Helmand province, and then put him on trial.

The terrorist group found him guilty of spying for U.S. and NATO forces. They then publicly hanged the young boy.

Afghan President Karzai has called the hanging a "crime against humanity".

"I don't think there's a crime bigger than that that even the most inhuman forces on earth can commit," he said. "A seven-year-old boy cannot be a spy. A seven-year-old boy cannot be anything but a seven-year-old boy, and therefore hanging or shooting to kill a seven-year-old boy. is a crime against humanity."
