Local Taliban government officials in the central Afghan province of Ghor say that they have discovered a young boy’s body hanging from a tree in Firozkoh city, the provincial capital of Ghor.

The body of this youngster was reportedly discovered yesterday evening in the Wardak Haa region to the east of Firuzkoh city, the center of Ghor province.

A 14-year-old boy’s body was reportedly discovered hanging from a tree, according to the source.

The teenager’s name is Hamid, and he comes from the province’s Dawlat Yar district, according to a newsletter published on Tuesday, August 16, by the Taliban police office in Ghor.

According to a different source, the boy was hanged after being killed mysteriously.

There is still no explanation for why or how this teen was hanged, as the newsletter of the Taliban police in Ghor province has not provided details.

Despite the Taliban’s claims of security, that the group has provided and maintained security in Afghanistan, it should be underlined that mysterious murders and other crimes persist and have recently become more frequent in several provinces across Afghanistan.
