(Farah Abdi Warsameh, Somalia) Found guilty of adultery, Mohamed Abukar Ibrahim, 48, is stoned to death, buried up to his chest.

(Farah Abdi Warsameh, Somalia) The stoning was carried out by an Islamic Insurgent group in Afgoye, Somalia

(Farah Abdi Warsameh, Somalia) The unmarried woman involved was given a more lenient punishment.

(Farah Abdi Warsameh, Somalia) Under sharia (Islamic) law the woman kept her life but was brutally flogged. I don't see a flogging here. I see another stoning.
