Taliban executed brother of former Afghan vice president, says family

Taliban extremists forces have executed Rohullah Azizi, brother of former Afghan Vice President Amrullah Saleh, Reuters reported on Friday, citing a text message from their family.

Azizi was killed on Thursday, Amrullah Saleh’s nephew Ebadullah Saleh told the news agency.

“They [Taliban] executed my uncle,” Ebadullah Saleh reportedly said in a text message. “They killed him yesterday and would not let us bury him. They kept saying his body should rot.”

The news that Saleh’s brother Rohullah Azizi was killed came days after Taliban extremist forces took control of the provincial centre of Panjshir, the last province holding out against Talibans.
