While targeting civilians in Kabul, the Taliban allegedly tricked an eight-year old girl into carrying a package containing a remote-control detonated bomb. Only the girl was killed in the blast. … [T]he girl was unaware that the bag she had been given by¬†Taliban insurgents held a bomb. Her body was taken to a nearby security check post, and the police called her relatives. (source)

A similar case was described here. More absurd human rights violations are here.

    This is what I’ve been saying all along. Its a religious view as well as a regional one. How can you deman money for the accidental death of one child then kill another and justify it. You can’t. Try this, the next time a religious nut walks up to you an asks if you’ve found jesus or mohamid, say you don’t believe in that nonsense and you discover a whole new side to these socalled peacefull people.
