I found a couple of news stories that appear to match this event, both from August, 2010. There are some differences between the two stories relating to the marital status of the couple. This one is from Al Jazeera:

The Taliban in Afghanistan has publicly stoned to death a man and a woman over an alleged love affair, government officials said.

Sunday's execution is the first by the Taliban in the Kunduz province and follows last week's call by Afghan clerics for a return to sharia and capital punishments under Islamic law.

Hoda Abdel-Hamid, Al Jazeera's correspondent in the Afghan capital, Kabul, said a local Taliban commander confirmed that the man was a married 28-year-old, while the woman was in her early twenties, engaged to marry so
