An 18-year-old boy, buried up to his neck, was killed publicly by stoning for allegedly raping a woman. The stoning was conducted by the militant group Al-Shabaab in southern Somalia.
In return, the militants gave the victim a young female cow as a dowry. The punishment was witnessed by 100 people, but no one had the courage to help the boy because of fear.
The death of the boy "shows that we have power to sentence anyone who breaks Islamic law," Sheikh Mohammed Abu Abdalla, the self-proclaimed governor of the group, told Reuters.
