The Taliban have carried out their first public execution since the group’s return to power in Afghanistan last year.

A Taliban spokesperson said a man was killed at a crowded sports stadium in south-western Farah province after he confessed to murder.

The Taliban’s supreme leader Haibatullah Akhundzada issued the edict last month, ordering judges to impose punishments, including public executions, public amputations and stoning.

But the execution, which took place on Wednesday, marks a return to the group’s extremist interpretation of Sharia law.
