HRW slams reduced sentences in mob killing of Farkhunda

HRW slams reduced sentences in mob killing of Afghan woman

Farkhunda, 27, was beaten and her body set ablaze in broad daylight last March in Kabul, triggering angry nationwide protests and drawing global attention to the treatment of Afghan women.

An appeals court last summer slashed sentences of the men convicted of her murder, vacating the death penalty in four cases, reducing prison terms to 20 years in three others and 10 years in the fourth.
