Taliban Video of Boy Executioner Causes Anger

From Taliban Video of Boy Executioner Causes Anger:

A Taliban video of a 12-year-old boy beheading a man accused of spying has angered many Afghans. "It's very wrong for the Taliban to use a small boy to behead a man," religious teacher Mullah Attullah said Thursday. The video released this week shows the boy in a camouflage jacket and a white headband using a knife to behead a blindfolded man accused of being a spy for foreign forces as men cry "Allahu Akbar."
Little boy beheader = bad. Adult men beheaders = okay. That's Islam for you.
