Stoned to death for alleged adultery

The religion of peace has been demonstrating its credentials for nonviolence by stoning a woman to death in Somalia for alleged adultery.

According to New Zealand’s One News:

The 23-year-old woman was executed in front of hundreds of people in the southern port of Kismayu, which the Islamist insurgents captured in August, witnesses said.

Guards opened fire when a relative ran forward, killing a child, they said.

A resident, Abdullahi Aden, is quoted as saying, “A woman in green veil and black mask was brought in a car as we waited to watch the merciless action of stoning.

“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.”

It said to be the first such execution for about two years.
