Female coffin bearers for woman killed by Kabul mob - 15 secs

The coffin of a woman killed by a mob in Kabul who accused her of burning the Koran - apparently falsely - is carried by women at her funeral, marking a break with Afghan custom.

The woman, Farkhunda, was beaten, hit by bats, stamped on, driven over, and her body dragged by a car before being set on fire.

Thirteen police officers have been suspended following allegations they failed to do enough to stop the attack in central Kabul last week.
