Meanwhile, sources in the Shohada district of Badakhshan province said that a 13-year-old boy has been mysteriously killed in the village of Posht Khana in the district. The district is under Taliban control. A local resident told Salam Watandar that when he returned home from school, his family was collecting fruit in a garden, and he joined them. According to him, his family members had sent the boy home to bring tea, and when he did not return, his younger brother went to search for him and found his body.

The resident adds that the boy was hanged from a wall after being killed so that it seems like an apparent case of suicide. The resident, who attended the funeral of the slain boy, said his family wanted their boy’s killer identified and arrested. Badakhshan local and security officials have not yet commented.

This comes even as the Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne has said that the continuing violence, killing and torture of civilians, especially women and girls, by Taliban militants is concerning.
