Love Can Get You Stoned...

A couple was discovered dead in Afganistan yesterday, having been stoned for planning to elope:
They were discovered by the Taliban on Sunday and stoned to death in front a crowd of about 150 men.
Amnesty International said it was the first confirming stoning in Afghanistan since the fall of Taliban rule in the 2001 US-led invasion.
