Afghanistan executed 15 prisoners - one convicted of killing foreign journalists - an official said Monday, ending three years without the death penalty and drawing UN criticism. The punishment also raised concerns of possible complications for NATO missions in the country. The executions were carried out Sunday evening according to an Afghan law that requires condemned prisoners be shot dead, said prisons chief Abdul Salam Ismat. Crimes committed by those killed included murder, kidnapping and armed robbery. Officials said no Taliban or al-Qaida fighters were among them.
