Eleven Afghan persons, believed to have been participants in a mob that dragged, beat, and killed a woman after she was accused of burning pages from the Quran, have been arrested, the CNN reported.
The Afghan woman is dragged onto a roof and hit with a stick, as a horde of angry, screaming men swarm around her.
Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Seddiqi said that the investigation is ongoing.
President Ashraf Ghani ordered two investigations related to the case -- one into the beating itself and another including religious scholars.
The government is committed to protecting and safeguarding all Islamic values, including prohibitions on burning the Quran, he said.
That's a responsibility of the nation's security and legal system, Ghani said, not of individual Afghans.
"No individual is allowed to make oneself a judge and use violence to punish others in degrading manners," the President said. "Launching personal trials and choosing who to punish stands in clear contradiction to Sharia and Islamic justice."
