Taliban hakt vingers af van hen die stemden

Kiezers in Afghanistan worden in een ziekenhuis in Herat behandeld aan hun handen. Talibanstrijders hakten de vingers af die in inkt waren gedoopt als teken dat ze hadden gestemd.

De tweede ronde van de presidentsverkiezingen verliep veel bloediger dan eerst gemeld. Zo'n 240 mensen kwamen door geweld om het leven.

epa04258180 Afghan voters whose inked fingers were cut off by Taliban miliitants as punishment for casting their votes, receive medical treatment at a hospital in Herat, Afghanistan, 15 June 2014. There were some 150 attacks across the country during the elections on 14 June, killing over 60 people, including about 20 assailants, government officials said. More than 7 million Afghans voted in the run-off for the new president, officials said, in announcing an unexpectedly high turnout, despite scores of attacks across the country. The turnout was better than the first round, which saw 6.6 million voters after 400,000 ballots were thrown out as fraudulent. Thirty-eight per cent of the voters on 14 June were women, the Election Commission said.  EPA/JALIL REZAYEE Beeld EPA
