Afghan mother and daughter stoned and shot dead after Taliban accused them of ‘moral deviation and adultery’

Armed men stoned and shot dead a widow and her daughter in Aghanistan after the Taliban accused the women of ‘moral deviation and adultery’, according to reports.

The killing happened on Thursday in the Khawaja Hakim area of Ghazni city, the BBC reported, and two men have now been arrested.

Officials – who blamed the Taliban for the attack – told the Corporation that armed men went into the house where the two women lived, took them to the yard outside and they were stoned and then shot. ‘Neighbours did not help or inform the authorities on time,’ an official told the BBC.

A neighbour of the executed women told M&G.com he heard shots but was afraid to go out.

Mother ‘made daughter pose nude for Skype stranger’ to enter fake $20,000 mom-child bikini shoot competition

A gullible mother allegedly made her daughter pose nude for a stranger on Skype, in the hope of winning a $20,000 mom-child bikini photo shoot.

Ann Lussier, 41, of Attleboro, Massachusetts, is facing child endangerment charges, after she allegedly made her daughter strip naked, while a man who claimed to be a photographer watched through a webcam.

Lussier and her daughter were unable to see the man, who said he was in Florida, because he told them his camera was broken. ‘The parent had to show the man what both she and the victim looked like with no clothes on, reportedly so he could see the shape of their bodies,’ court documents stated.

The guileless mother was only caught when she told her twin sister how ‘uncooperative’ her daughter had been, according to the documents.

Father died trying to save his drowning daughter at beauty spot where vandals had stolen lifebuoy

A father jumped into a swirling river to save his teenage daughter and drowned after vandals had stolen vital life-saving equipment, an inquest heard today.

The theft was described by a coroner as ‘unforgivable’ after he heard how a lifebuoy could have saved 59-year-old Michael Payne.

The father leapt into action without a thought for his own safety after seeing his 13-year-old daughter getting into difficulty as she swam with friends in the River Thames. He was quickly overcome by the fast-moving water and disappeared beneath the surface, watched from the bank by his partner of 17 years and two of his children.

His horrified family and passers-by frantically combed the river bank for lifesaving equipment only to realise that a buoy they could have thrown to him, was missing.

How can I be Granny without becoming an unpaid nanny?

Vicki and Octavia, our mother and daughter agony aunts, answer your questions

My son’s just had his first child, about which his father and I are delighted. I’m keen to help out if I’m really needed, but I’m wary of being taken for granted and used by my son and daughter-in-law as a cleaner, babysitter, bottle-feeder who has no life of her own – I’ve done my time as a mother. How do I say this without sounding selfish?
VICKI Octavia and I are asked this question often and half the nation’s grannies take deep offence every time. In the demographic you and I belong to, half of us (me) cannot wait for a grandchild, would be its toiling slave and would move house to be nearer to precious.

How do I tell my parents that I’m marrying a man who is twice my age?

Vicki and Octavia, our mother and daughter agony aunts, answer your questions

I have been living with my boyfriend for two years and haven’t told my parents. He’s twice my age – I’m 24, he’s 48. We’ve now decided that we want to get married but I have no idea how to let my parents know without getting a painfully negative reaction, as I haven’t even told them I have a boyfriend
VICKI Bang on their door together and step over the threshold together. But you do the talking: ‘Mum, Dad, this is X, we’re in love and we’re getting married.’ If the Aged Ps are anything like me, they will be so gobsmacked that their immediate reaction will be neither negative nor positive but simply open-mouthed shock.

The anorexic mother who weighs less than her daughter, 7

At first glance they might be sisters, but look again at this startling picture.

They are, in fact, a 26-year-old mother and her daughter.

After suffering from anorexia for half her life, Rebecca Jones weighs five stone – less than her seven-year-old daughter, Maisy. And her terrifyingly thin frame is exacerbated by the contrast when they wear identical clothes.

The medical secretary survives on soup, toast and energy drinks – even though doctors have warned her the lack of nutrients could kill her. At the same time she encourages 5st 9lb Maisy to enjoy chocolate and cupcakes.

Mother facing jail for refusing to send teenage daughter to school claiming ‘isolation unit’ breaches her human rights

A mother is at war with her daughter’s school after the teenage girl was sent to an isolation room for a day for an offence she did not commit.

Teachers had suspected Faye Allen of playing truant, but later discovered she had been out of lessons with a headache.

Her mother Pam, 48, complained about her punishment in the ‘humiliating and degrading’ unit which she said was ‘like a prison cell’. She then withdrew the 16-year-old from class in protest.

Now education bosses have written to the former soldier to warn that she could be jailed unless her only child returns to lessons immediately.
