Afghan woman, killed by a mob for a crime she didn’t commit, becomes a rallying point for activists

Farkhunda, an Afghan woman; lay on the ground beneath the flailing, kicking feet of dozens of men. Her face swollen and bright with blood, she tries to stand and, in vain, plead for mercy. Her attackers; who (falsely) accuse her of burning a Koran; kick her, pelt her with stones, beat her with wood sticks, then throw Farkhunda’s body off a rooftop, run her over with a car and set her on fire on a bank of the muddy Kabul River; while Police stand-by after a failed-attempt to rescue her from the angry mob.
