Angry Afghan mob chop off ears of a bomb suspect

In the Southern Afghanistan province of Helmand, angry residents cut off the ears of a man accused of planting a roadside bomb that killed two civilians on Thursday. The blast killed two teenagers and six others while three children were wounded as a result of the incident.

The mob was too ferocious and they wanted to hang the man in public. The local district governor and the police had to interfere in order to save the man’s life, but the furious residents had already chopped off his ears.

“This is a warning for those who kill our people everyday; we won’t tolerate their actions any more” stated a local resident.

Hand-made bombs have been usually the best suited weapon for the Talibans during their longstanding war against the Afghan regime and the NATO forces
