Islamists stone to death Somali woman for adultery
Woman stoned to death for adultery after Somali court ruling
MOGADISHU (AFP) — Thousands of people gathered Monday to witness 50 Somali men stone a woman to death after an Islamic court in the southern port of Kismayo found her guilty of adultery, witnesses said.
Aisho Ibrahim Dhuhulow, who had been found guilty of extra-marital intercourse was buried in the ground up to her neck while the men pelted her head with rocks.
"Our sister Aisha asked the Islamic Sharia court in Kismayo to be charged and punished for the crime she committed," local Islamist leader Sheikh Hayakallah told the crowd.
"She admitted in front of the court to engaging in adulterous sexual intercourse," he added.
"She was asked several times to review her confession but she stressed that she wanted Sharia law and the deserved punishment to apply."
The execution was carried in one of the city's main squares.
The port of Kismayo was seized in August by a coalition of forces loyal to rebel leader Hassan Turki, and the Shebab, the country's main radical Islamist insurgent organisation.
Turki is listed as a terrorist financier by Washington.
The new administration formed there began implementing a strict form of Sharia (Islamic law).
"This afternoon we are telling the people of Kismayo that we are practising a punishment that is rare in this region and was carried out in Kismayo for the first time," Sheikh Hayakallah said.
Cameras were banned from the public stoning but print and radio journalists were allowed to attend.
Islamists stone to death Somali woman for adultery
KISMAYU, Somalia - Somali Islamists have stoned to death a woman accused of adultery in the first such public killing by the militants for about two years, witnesses said.
The 23-year-old woman was placed in a hole up to her neck for the execution late on Monday in front of hundreds of people in a square of the southern port of Kismayu, which the Islamist insurgents captured in August.
Stones were hurled at her head, and she was brought out of the hole three times to see if she had died.
When a relative and others surged forward, guards opened fire, killing a child, the witnesses said.
"A woman in green veil and black mask was brought in a car as we waited to watch the merciless act of stoning," one local resident, Abdullahi Aden, told Reuters.
"We were told she submitted herself to be punished, yet we could see her screaming as she was forcefully bound, legs and hands. A relative of hers ran towards her, but the Islamists opened fire and killed a child."
The Islamists last carried out public executions when they ruled Mogadishu and most of south Somalia for half of 2006. Allied Ethiopian and Somali government forces toppled them at the end of that year, but they have waged an Iraq-style guerrilla campaign since then, gradually taking territory back.

Somali government, Islamists agree on Ethiopian pullout
A human at its worst act, very sad indeed. I hope they do not come out say this was done in the name of God. shame shame on who do this horrible act, bunch of savages.
These people are animals! I thank God/Allah that Ethiopian Muslims (50% of Ethiopia) are not backward like these Somalian donkeys.
Beautiful. it is better for her to be punished on earth than the eternal fire of hell.
She was a married woman and lied to another man that she is single. He married her.
Then she was found out and she confessed.
That contitutes adultery and chose punishment on earth.

It was better if she confessed her sins and received Jesus Christ as her personal Saviour.
You see, this are the kind of people that some of you called them as “liberation fighters". However, those are the most in-humane creatures on earth that are living in the way of the 7th century barbarianism in the Arabian penisula.
So, for whatever reasons Melles Zenawi’s decision to wipe out those barbarians is legitimate and highly beneficial for the Somali people.
I completely agree with Menelik II, we are lucky that Ethiopian Muslims are very progressive and committed to civil law and not this arcane and outdated Sharia law.
What has to do this Ethiopia?.
You stupid, moron, uncivilized barbaric being,
I wish you took her place. Let god punish such idiot extremist Moslems, like you.
Let god burn you and your likes backward parasites in hell for million times and more.
It is a hinious and inhumane punishment in the 21st century, those criminals are following the outdated and condemned rules of Islam, the civilized World community must act and wipe this outlaws to hell .
I can’t believe this Somalies. People don’t do this kind of crule things in modern age. Can you imagine if that is your sister your mother you doghter on anyone you love. Sad, Sad and stupid too.
this will be the near future of eritrea when Eritrean Islamic jihad takes over.The sooner it happens the better.
victory to eritrean Islamic Jihad!
This is an barbaric kiling as Moslims we should condom such babaric kilings to humans.Nevevr,Never happened before in Ashaab time,a women came voluntarily to the prophet(PBH) she toled her pregnancy has No father.The Prophet said to her first you go and deliver the baby,then she come back with baby and he said go and raise the babay and she come back again and again you see,how she was voluntary to kill herself.Only that case happen since that day.This Somalis are really crazy,and has lack of the Islamic religion knowledges.They are like Tali bans,in Afghanistan.
They could a lot of other things for their communities live in the cities instead of demolishing the Churches and killings poor ladies in stones. These shows you how less knowledge they have in the Islam it salves.Islam is peace and mercy for the peoples.Not to kill in barbaric way. Not to burn and demolish religious places like they did it in few weeks ago. During the Sahaba.The Churches,Temples and non Muslim communities were to live in peace with Sahaba and Islamic countries.
Where the hell they came from these aliens?.
