A woman was stoned to death in south-east Yemen after she was found guilty of indulging into adultery and prostitution by an Al-Qaeda Sharia court.
According to a report in the Mail Online, the woman was killed in a public execution in the city of Al Mukalla, which has been under the control of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) since April last year.
The woman was placed in hole at the centre of a courtyard of a military building and stoned to death. Several locals residents were also present during the execution.
The woman has confessed in front of the judges to committing adultery. During the trial, the woman also admitted that she practiced prostitution, as a pimp and she worked with a group of women in brothels.
According to the sharia law, married men or women face a punishment of ‘stoned to death’ for having sex outside marriage.
