And waving our red weapons o'er our heads
Let's all cry 'Peace, Freedom, Liberty!'

11 Afghan Police Convicted Over Farkhunda Mob Killing
A furious mob turned on Farkhunda on March 19, beating her in broad daylight and setting her body ablaze on the banks of the Kabul River. Forty-nine people were arrested, including 19 police officers, some of whom were shown standing by and doing nothing to stop the mob in cellphone videos recorded by bystanders. The attack came after an amulet seller, whom she had reportedly castigated for peddling superstition, falsely accused her of burning the Qur’an. MORE
