SYNOPSIS:

17-year-old girl being beaten by Islamic radicals in northwestern region of Swat, where Sharia law was introduced after the government reached a truce with the Taleban in February.

A local Taleban commander in the militant stronghold of Matta, 25 miles from the regional capital, Mingora, ordered the girl to be flogged a week ago after accusing her of adultery, according to local reporters.
But some residents of Matta have accused the commander of ordering the beating to get revenge after the girl refused to accept his proposal of marriage, the reporters told The Times.

"Please! Enough! Enough!" the girl is heard crying in Pashtu, the language of the tribes who dominate northwestern Pakistan - now the main hub of Taleban and al-Qaeda activity.

At another point, she cries: "I am repenting, my father is repenting what I have done, my grandmother is repenting what I have done..."

The man flogging her is also heard abusing his colleague as he struggles to hold her down and stop her covering her backside with her hands.
"You should hold her tightly so she doesn't move", he is heard saying.
