Taliban militants in Afghanistan reportedly beheaded two children on Monday, ages 10 and 16, as punishment for stealing food.

The Taliban is an Islamic fundamentalist political movement based in Afghanistan. They have warned of increasing attacks against American forces this year, which they named their spring offensive.

Although the Taliban has largely targeted American forces in their country, the violent beheading of two local children has shown that children are not off limits to the Taliban’s terrorism and brutal forces within the region. The beheading was carried out as punishment after the 10-year-old allegedly “stole” food from a garbage bin around a security checkpoint. The youngster was reportedly beheaded on Monday, along with a 16-year-old, although his participation in the “theft” has not been confirmed.

The governor’s office broke the story in a press release, however, according to CNN, the Taliban has not issued an official statement on the boys’ brutal slaying.
