    Taliban Punishes Man, Paints His Face Black, After Taking Over Kabul



     The Taliban appear to continue to embarrass the accused robbers with a video showing a man with a blackened head tied to the back of a car.


    The images, posted on Instagram by British journalist Rustam Wahab, who received them from a contact in Kabul, showed the man with a blackened face standing on the back of a ute.


    His hands appear to be tied behind his back and there is a rope around his chest that holds him to the car.


    Crowds of people surround him, many holding up their phones to take photos and videos of the man.


    A traffic police officer is nearby, trying to signal cars across the busy street.



    The video of the man comes two days after facing images of the same punishment that were released to the world.

    Photos taken by journalist Bilal Sarwary showed men covered in black tar with ribbons tied around their necks, as soldiers paraded them through the streets of Herat.


    The two men were flanked by armed soldiers, some of whom appear to be pulling the ropes.


    "The Taliban accused these men of robbery, their faces were dyed black, to shame them and they were displayed in Herat city after Friday prayers," Sarwary tweeted.


    Another video showed a crowd of people following the men.


    Black makeup is considered a warning for offenders. Repeat offenders run the risk of having their hand cut off.


    The situation could also be dire for the LGBTI community. A Taliban judge ruled last month that the penalty for homosexuality would be death under his rule.


    “There are only two penalties for homosexuals: either stoning or having to stand behind a wall that falls on them. The wall must be between 2.5 and 3 meters high, "the judge told the German newspaper Bild.

    The Taliban have regained control of Afghanistan after a swift insurgency saw them capture Kabul, the nation's capital, on Sunday.


    It has been 20 years since the Taliban were in power in Afghanistan after the United States forced them to flee Kabul in 2001 because of their support for al Qaeda after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.


    Fears are growing that the Taliban are already reintroducing their brutal way of life in Afghanistan.


    The Taliban have already announced their plans to bring back Sharia law in Afghanistan, an ultra-strict interpretation of the Islamic tradition.
