A married woman, who committed adultery in Indonesia was yesterday caned in public.
Indonesia, a Southeast Asian nation, is the most populous Muslim-majority country.
Reports have it that the young woman, who was found guilty of having sex outside marriage, and was condemned to be whipped, was brought to the public stage in Banda Aceh where two guards forced her to kneel down, before a masked man took his turns to repeatedly canes her across the back as she clenches her fists and appears to bite her veil while receiving her punishment.
After the young woman was punished, she was led away on a stretcher for treatment.
A public caning is just one of the punishments handed out to people breaking Sharia law in Banda Aceh, the only province in Indonesia, where it is still followed closely.
