The Daily Mail is reporting that elders in the village of Quds contacted Taliban commanders after the woman's pregnancy became known. A local official said: 'She had an illegal relationship with a man who was not her husband,' adding, 'Her husband died many years before. Then she became pregnant so, according to Islam, we gave her a very strong punishment. It was more than 200 lashes. Then we shot her.'This is in addition to the recent slaying of 10 medical missionaries (allegedly for preaching Christianity), the executions of a 7-year-old boy for spying, a young couple for eloping, and many more in Afghanistan. That's what's happening in Taliban land. As messed up as things are over here, I'm proud to be an American. God bless the USA.

I would like to point out briefly that I do not know what injunction they would be following to give this woman 200 lashes and then execution by firing squad. 100 lashes are prescribed for fornicators in the Qur'an, but not 200:
"The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication,- flog each of them with a hundred stripes: Let not compassion move you in their case, in a matter prescribed by Allah, if ye believe in Allah and the Last Day: and let a party of the Believers witness their punishment." -- Surah 24:2
Execution by stoning is prescribed in various ahadith (e.g. Sahih Bukhari 2.23.413), and I guess an argument can be made that a bullet is just a really fast stone. But I don't think 200 lashes and then 3 bullets is prescribed Islamic punishment for adultery. Granting that, the punishments are being carried out in the name of Islam and they are close enough to where Islam can clearly be identified as the root of this cruel execution.
