Islamists: Two stoned to death for committing adultery in Mali


This Just In

Islamists in control of northern Mali said they forced a man and a woman into two holes and stoned them to death for committing adultery in the lawless region.

Witnesses watched quietly as Islamists executed the two by pelting them with rocks in the remote Aguelhok town, according to a local resident.

“I don’t know how many rocks they threw or for how long it went on before they were both dead,” said Haman Maiga, a resident of Aguelhok who witnessed the stoning. “No one dared to try and stop the Islamists.”

The woman had two small children, a boy and a girl, according to Maiga.

A leader of a radical Islamic group in the region said Sharia law condemns relationships outside marriage
