Police investigating the case said they believed the family of the woman, aged around 20, was responsible for the murders in the southern province of Helmand, a lawless hotbed of the Taliban insurgency.The elder brother of the male victim, who was in his 20s, told officers the woman had run away with him recently and was living in their family home.

On Monday, 10 men broke into the house near the provincial capital Lashkar Gah and kidnapped the pair, police official Mohammad Ismail Hotak told a news agency.

“On Tuesday, local residents reported that there were two bodies in the graveyard. We went there and found them. Both were beheaded,” he said.

“From our investigations, we have found that the two had a love affair. We believe the family and relatives of the girl are behind the killing.”

The police official said the brother told investigators the dead man had loved the woman and wanted to marry her.

Omar Zwak, the provincial governor’s spokesman, confirmed the incident and said an investigation was under way.

Relations between young men and women outside marriage are taboo in Afghanistan, an extremely conservative nation with deep Islamic beliefs.

Most marriages are arranged by family elders, in some cases without the couples being consulted.

A man attempting to establish relations with a woman is seen as an insult to her family’s honour and often leads to violent revenge.

In such cases, the woman is often also killed for supposedly bringing shame to the family.

    Egypt’s Executioner: Strangling Has Been My Hobby Since Childhood, I Just Love My Job

    Following are excerpts from an interview with Hajj Abd Al-Nabi, the official executioner of Egypt, which was posted on the Internet on September 8, 2013.
    Hajj Abd Al-Nabi: I am the executioner of the Arab Republic of Egypt. I hold the rank of chief warrant officer in the police and the prison authority. I am Egypt’s executioner, responsible for carrying out the death penalty.

    I love people, and people love me, but when I am doing my job, I am carrying out the law of Allah.

    When it comes to carrying out our my job, I am tough. The murderer has done an abominable thing, and I cannot be soft with him. If I were soft towards this criminal, I wouldn’t be able to execute him, but when I’m at home, with my kids, I am as calm as can be.
    […]
    I have placed [the noose] around some 800 heads – tough people, big people, young people… All the despicable crimes – killing, adultery, premeditated murder, and so on… I carry out all the death sentences.
    In all honesty, I love my work. I just love it! I never say “no” when they need me at work. This is my work and my livelihood.

    When I was young – about 13 or 14 years old – the dry Ismailiya Canal in Shubra Al-Kheima still had water in it. My hobby was to catch a cat, to place a rope around its neck, to strangle it, and throw it into the water. I would get hold of any animal – even dogs. I would strangle these animals and throw them into the water – even dogs.
    Interviewer: That was a long time ago…
    Hajj Abd Al-Nabi: Yes, when I was 13 or 14 years old. Strangulation was my hobby. When I applied for the job and did well on the tests – proving that I could take the psychological pressure and so on – they said: “Congratulations. Now, grow a moustache.”
    The truth is that my heart is dead, because executing comes from the heart, not the moustache. Only if you have a heart of stone can you be content in this line of work.

    My parents were hard on me. They would say: “This will get you to hell!” I would say to them: “The cat bit me,” “The cat bit some kid,” “The dog bit a boy in the leg, and the leg got infected.” I became the enemy of all things harmful to Mankind.
    Interviewer: So you were violent as a boy…
    Hajj Abd Al-Nabi: I was a little Satan…
    Interviewer: Did you strangle many kids you were playing with?
    Hajj Abd Al-Nabi: Whenever I would place my hands around a kid’s neck, I would go soft when I remembered that it was a child, not an animal.
    Interviewer: So you had a disposition toward this job from a young age…
    Hajj Abd Al-Nabi: It’s a gift.
    Interviewer: Strangling is a gift?
    Hajj Abd Al-Nabi: A great gift. I love my job very much, and I can’t give it up. Even when I retire, I will report for duty in emergencies. I will leave this job only when I am dead.
