Afghan Girl, 14, Beheaded For Refusing Marriage Proposal

More grim news from Afghanistan, where refusing someone's marriage proposal can result in an acid attack or gruesome death.  A 14-year-old girl in Konduz province is the latest victim: beheaded by two men who have since been arrested.

Local police officer Nizamuddin Hakimi told RFE/RL that the girl's body was found late on November 27 in the province’s Imam Sahib District.

Hakimi said that a preliminary investigation revealed that the two suspects had asked the girl's parents if one of them could marry her.

Both the girl and her parents reportedly rejected the proposal.

Hakimi gave no further details regarding the men's possible connection to the killing.
Savages. There are no other words for them.
