Woman lapidated by al Shabaab

Somalia Islamist group al-Shabaab announced it has lapidated to death a woman accused of poliandria.

The al-Qaeda-linked group radio, Andalus, reports that the execution by lapidation took place on Wednesday (9/05/2018)  after an ad hoc al-Shabab court convicted the woman in Sablale town in Lower Shabelle region.

The report says masked men lapidated to death 30-year-old Shukri Abdullahi Warsame in the middle of a  public square according to the procedure of Sharia law.

The self-proclaimed Sharia judge said the woman had confessed to having secretly married 11 men without seeking a divorce.

Al-Shabab has been fighting for years to impose a strict version of Islam in the Horn of Africa nation.
