” Herat – An Afghan woman and her nephew allegedly beheaded the woman’s daughter-in-law after the victim refused to be coerced into prostitution.

The Atlantic reports that 20-year-old Mah Gul was killed last Sunday in Herat province, southwestern Afghanistan, near the Iranian border. Local police claim that Gul’s mother-in-law, Pari Gul, and her 18-year-old nephew Najibullah have confessed to the killing.


According to police, Gul was killed because she repeatedly rejected the mother-in-law’s attempts to force her into prostitution.”
