Afghanistan's women's football stars risk being turned into 'sex slaves' and tortured to death by the Taliban



Afghanistan's women's football players are at risk of becoming sex slaves to the Taliban and being tortured to death.



During Taliban rule from 1996 to 2001, many sports and recreational activities including football were banned for all citizens, while women were forbidden from even leaving the house without being accompanied by a male relative.



It has now been reported that some international football stars, many of whom are in hiding, fear they may be captured and beaten by the militants.



Goalkeeping coach Wida Zemarai told Swedish news outlet Expressen: 'It's awful to think about it. They themselves have said they are there to do jihad and that they choose girls as sex slaves.



'Should the Taliban get hold of any of the girls, they will not have them lying at home like dolls. They want to use them as sex slaves and torture them. Maybe until they die.'
