Judicial corporal punishment in Afghanistan
Judicial corporal punishment in Afghanistan is lawful and can be carried out in public or private.
Flogging may also be administered as a disciplinary measure in penal institutions.
Courts have also ordered flogging for alcohol use, although a BBC report has claimed that this is rare.
