People rally in front of the Supreme Court in Kabul, on March 24, 2015, protesting the killing of Afghan woman named Farkhunda, five days earlierFour Afghan men were sentenced to death Wednesday for the savage lynching of a woman falsely accused of blasphemy, a landmark judgement in a nation where female victims often have little legal recourse. The Kabul primary court also sentenced eight people to 16 years in prison while 18 others were found not guilty after a three-day trial broadcast live on national television. Her killing triggered protests around Afghanistan and drew global attention to the treatment of Afghan women. Judge Safiullah Mojaddidi, announcing the verdict, said Zainul Abiddin, Mohammad Yaqub, Mohammad Sharif and Abdul Bashir would be hanged.

Security forces and rescue workers inspect an abandoned camp in a jungle in Thailand's southern Songkhla provinceBy Surapan Boonthanom PADANG BESAR, Thailand (Reuters) - Authorities in Thailand have dug up the bodies of six apparent Rohingya migrants from Myanmar not far from a mass grave found at the weekend, the military said on Wednesday, and U.N. officials called for a regional effort to end human trafficking. The discovery was made at a rubber plantation in Thailand's Songkhla province near its border with Malaysia around 4 km (2.5 miles) from the site where the 26 bodies were found a few days previously. "Villagers living nearby told us the bodies buried here are the bodies of Rohingya migrants from Myanmar from nearby human trafficking camps," Colonel Jatuporn Klampasut, deputy secretary general of the Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC) Region 4, told Reuters. The U.N. refugee agency UNHCR appealed for a joint response to human trafficking by countries in the region, including addressing the root causes that drove people to turn to smugglers in the first place.
