    An Afghan volleyball player on the girls’ national team was beheaded
    by the Taliban — with gruesome photos of her severed head posted on
    social media, according to her coach.

    athletes are in a bad situation and in despair and fear,” she told
    the paper. “Everyone has been forced to flee and live in unknown

    One of the players who escaped, Zahra Fayazi, told the BBC last
    month that at least one of the players had been killed.

    “We don’t want this to repeat for our other players,” she told the broadcaster from her new home in the UK.

    “Many of our players who are from provinces were threatened many
    times by their relatives who are Taliban and Taliban followers.
