The Taliban remain as inventive as ever when it comes to new forms of horror:

Taliban insurgents cut the index fingers off 11 Afghans who participated in this weekend’s presidential run-off poll, officials say.

The incident, a punishment for voting, occurred in western Herat province, police spokesman Raoud Ahamdi said.

The Taliban had warned people not to participate in Saturday’s vote.

I honestly expect this disfigurement to become de rigueur in any Islamic country with free elections and free-range radicals.
