A 30-year-old in woman in Latti, Sar-e-Pul, a remote part of Afghanistan, was allegedly beheaded by a group of men after she entered a city without her husband.
She was targeted by a group of armed men and Zabiullah Amani, provincial governor spokesperson said the woman was likely beheaded because she'd made the journey unaccompanied by her husband, who was in Iran at the time.
According to Taliban rules, women are strictly prohibited from leaving their home unless accompanied by a man, usually a husband or relative.
Women are often also banned from working in areas controlled by the jihadi group.
Earlier this month, reports suggested five female Afghan guards were shot by gunmen while on their way to work in the airport in southern Kandahar.
