An Indonesian woman was caned in public in Indonesia’s Aceh Province for having s#x outside marriage, a crime punishable under strict local Islamic law.
The woman was whipped alongside seven other people outside a mosque in the provincial capital, Banda Aceh.
Dozens of people alongside religious officers gathered outside the mosque to watch the offenders as they received their punishment respectively.
In the photos, a masked sharia officer known as an ‘algojo’, was pictured canning the offenders between five to 45 lashes on their backs.
Public whipping is a common form of punishment for a range of offenses, including gambling, drinking alcohol, and having gay s#x or relations outside marriage in Aceh, which is the only region in the world’s biggest Muslim-majority country that imposes Islamic law.
