Everybody Must Get Stoned

dyingwoman.jpgIn the first execution by stoning in southern Somalia since Sharia Law was instituted in August, a woman was pelted to death with stones in a main square in Kismayo in front of thousands of people. The woman had reportedly pled guilty to adultery.

A local Islamic leader even suggested that the woman requested the execution: “She was asked several times to review her confession but she stressed that she wanted Sharia law and the deserved punishment to apply,” said Sheikh Hayakallah.

I’m sure.

Worst Lie Ever.

And the man? He was stoned too, I presume?

I guess "pled guilty to adultery" is the same as "admitted to being raped" under Sharia law.

she was most likely tortured and raped to the point of writing the confession. standard stuff.
