An Afghan woman was beheaded last week after she refused to be a prostitute despite her mother-in-law's urging, the AFP reported.

The woman was identified as Mah Gul, 20, who reportedly lived in Herat province in western Afghanistan.  This was not the first time the mother-in-law tried to force her into prostitution, authorities said, according to the AFP report.
