TALIBAN thugs reportedly gunned down a woman in the street for not wearing a burqa as death squads rampage across Afghanistan.

According to Fox News, the woman was executed in Taloqan, the capital of Takhar province, for not wearing an Islamic veil in public as Afghans face a new horror reality under the ruthless rule of the terror group.

A photo of the alleged killing published by Fox News on Wednesday shows a woman lying in a pool of blood as relatives and members of the public crouch around her.

It’s not clear when the woman was killed.

The Taliban are now tightening their grip on power following their lightning victory that has shocked the world.

Footage obtained by Fox News showed a convoy of Taliban fighters roaring down a street in Kabul and opening fire while reportedly hunting for activists and government workers.

And Mujahid said the Taliban “are committed to the rights of women” – but added that would be “under the system of Sharia”.

The militants have even urged women to return to school and work, and one Taliban spokesman granted a TV interview to a female journalist.

While Sharia simply refers to laws that are derived from Islam, the Taliban have an extreme interpretation of what this means in practice.

And last night, Taliban fanatics attacked women and children with whips and sticks before firing their guns amid the ongoing chaos at Kabul airport.

Afghans were left in tears as they watched fellow countrymen being brutalized by Taliban militants in the jam-packed streets of Kabul.

There are a lot of desperate people trying to get to the airport, and subject to the situation remaining calm, which the Taliban are working hard to achieve alongside us, the system will work, we believe.

General Sir Nick Carter

And a 20-year-old Dutch man said his family saw Taliban fighters executing Afghan soldiers in the street on their way home last night after they couldn’t board an evacuation flight amid the chaotic crowds.

Aryan, who is currently in the Netherlands, told NOS: “My sister is 17, seeing things like this is indescribably bad. I was really confident that they would go back today.

It comes as the UK’s head of the armed forces warned the operation to evacuate the remaining Brits and their local allies from Afghanistan is entering a “critical” phase.

‘LOTS OF CHALLENGES’

General Sir Nick Carter, the chief of the defence staff, said they are working with the Taliban to ensure people can leave but he warned there are “a lot of challenges on the ground”.

Gen Sir Nick said he expects seven aircraft to head to Kabul, which will allow another 1,000 people to leave on Wednesday.

“At the moment we are collaborating with the Taliban on the ground, who are providing security.

“They are making sure that the centre of Kabul is very calm at the moment and so far we have not had reports of people finding it difficult to get to the airport.”
