KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): A woman’s beheaded body has been recovered in the capital of southern Kandahar province, an official said on Wednesday.

Kandahar police spokesman Mohammad Asif Hakimi said the woman, whose body was found in the 12th police district, was decapitated due to family violence.

Some suspected individuals have been arrested in connection with the incident, according to the police official, who did not give further details.

But a well-placed source said the slain woman had three children and her husband had been detained in connection with her murder.

Mirwais Hospital Director Dr. Mohammad Qasim said the woman’s corpse was brought to the hospital on Tuesday. Her head had been chopped off with a knife, he added.
