TALIBAN militants dragged a school teacher out of a mosque in Afghanistan and cut off his ears as a "punishment" for working for the Government, an education official said.
The rebels took another dozen people, most of them elderly men, out of the mosque in the southern province of Zabul and beat them up on similar charges, provincial education chief Mohammad Nabi Khushal said overnight.
The men had burst into the mosque while dozens of worshippers were in a late night prayer session Saturday and singled out primary school teacher Bismillah Khan, Mr Khushal said, blaming Taliban rebels.
"They took him out of the mosque and cut off his ears. They said, 'Anyone working for the Government will be punished like this'," he said.
The teacher, who worked at a refurbished school re-opened five months ago, was admitted to a US military-run medical facility in the area for treatment, he said.

It would seem to me that, if you truly do have a better idea or way of doing something, it sells itself on its own merits. The fact that you need to lop off someone’s ears or bake a 10 year old boy and serve him to his father for dinner kinda suggests your ideas aren’t on the right track YOU BARBEROUS, SCUM-SUCKING PIGS!
They “only” cut off his ears?
Oh, thank God.
It could have been much worse. It could have been American soldiers putting underwear on the heads of terrorist filth.
Then the GD media would be crying about it for a year.
There was a Muslim in my class this morning, wearing long sleeves and her wrap in this scorching weather. She seems normal enough, but does have an accent, which is unusual for this area.
And she does carry two backpacks... which kinda freaks me out.
I heard a report on the John Batchelor show on Sunday night that the real problem in Afghanistan is one thuggish drug-dealing family, not very different from the problems Colombia faced in the 1980s and 90s.
