Afghanistan buries woman beaten to death by mob
Kabul: Afghan women rights activists carry the coffin of 27-year-old Farkhunda, an Afghan woman who was beaten to death by a mob, during her funeral, in Kabul, Afghanistan, Sunday, March 22, 2015. Hundreds of people gathered in northern Kabul for the funeral of Farkhunda, who like many Afghans is known by only one name. She was killed late Thursday by a mob of mostly men who beat her, set her body on fire and then threw it into the Kabul River, according to police accounts. Police are still investigating what prompted the mob assault.
