An Afghan woman married off as a 15-year-old has had her nose cut off by her enraged husband using a pocket knife.

Badly mutilated Reza Gul, 20, was rushed to hospital after the attack in the northwestern province of Faryab on Sunday after losing large amounts of blood.

Her husband, Mohammad Khan, had recently returned from Iran and begun beating and torturing his wife, before also taking a second bride who was aged just seven, it was claimed.

The incident highlights the endemic violence against women in Afghan society, despite reforms since the hardline Taliban Islamist regime was ousted by a 2001 U.S.-led invasion, foreign media reports.
