Woman stoned to death in Afghanistan over accusation of adultery

(CNN)- The men surround the woman as she stands in a hole dug into the stony ground, only her head pokes above the surface. Then they begin to pick up rocks and hurl them at her again and again from close range.
 
Her agonized cries grow louder as the barrage of stones intensifies.
 
The barbaric killing took place in a Taliban-controlled village in central Afghanistan last week, according to the provincial governor. Video of it, apparently filmed on a cell phone, has circulated on social media.
