KABUL (Pajhwok): The corpses of five men executed a day earlier at the Pul-i-Charkhi prison and of a notorious criminal Habib Istalif were on Thursday handed over to their families, an official said.

The five were hanged on Wednesday afternoon days after they were convicted of sexually assaulting four women and robbing the victims of valuables in August in the Paghman district of Kabul.  

Forensic Department official Abdul Matin Salangi told Pajhwok Afghan News they received the six bodies on Wednesday and released two of them to their relatives the same day.
