- Horrific mob killing was captured on video
- Sentences can be appealed by either side
- Earlier, four men were sentenced to death for the killing
The killing, on March 19, was recorded in a video that resonated around the globe. It shows the woman, who was named Farkhunda, surrounded by angry men, her face covered in blood.
She is pushed over. The men kick her and beat her with rocks and boards. In the last part of the video, her body is engulfed in flames.
Then it was thrown into a river.
Failure to carry out their duty
On Tuesday, Judge Safiullah Mujadidi sentenced the 11 officers to prison for failing to carry out their duty and for carelessness. Eight other officers were found not guilty due to lack of evidence.
People representing either Farkhunda or the police officers can appeal to a higher court.
Earlier this month, four men were sentenced to death for killing her. Eight others were given 16-year sentences. And 18 men were found not guilty.
Afghanistan's Ministry of Hajj and Religious Affairs has said it found no evidence that Farkhunda burned the Quran.
