leader says Clinton should be stoned to death
ISLAMABAD: The leader of
Afghanistan's Taleban army Mullah Mohammed Omar was quoted as
saying that US President Bill Clinton should be stoned to death
for his indiscretions involving women other than his wife. This
according to a weekly newspaper published by the militant Islamic
group, Harakat ul-Ansar. The US administration last year declared
this group a terrorist organization. The newspaper, quoting Omar,
said '"Clinton is a confessed sinner and a bad person."
Ruling out the possibility of holding negotiations with Clinton,
Omar was quoted as saying "It is absolutely not possible to
negotiate with such a person and he should be removed (from
power) and stoned to death. He is of bad character." In
strict Islam it is a capital offense to have sex outside of
marriage and it is punishable by stoning. Referring to the August
20 missile attack on eastern Afghanistan by the United States,
the newspaper quoted Omar as demanding an apology from the US
administration. "America should apologize to the world of
Islam and should remove its forces from Muslim countries,"
the newspaper quoted Omar as saying.
TEHRAN, Aug 30: Iranian diplomats held hostage by Taliban in Afghanistan have been killed, a member of parliament was quoted as saying by the Tehran daily Zan on Sunday.
"According to reliable sources in Afghanistan, the Iranian diplomats have already been martyred by the Taliban," Morteza Nabavi said during a ceremony in Qazvin.
Zan had earlier quoted Pakistani sources as saying that the hostages had been killed, but there has been no official confirmation.
A total of 47 Iranians were seized after the group captured Mazar-i-Sharif. The hostages included 11 diplomats, one journalist and 35 truck drivers.-dpa
