Although one has to wonder why BBC covered the story.Is it because they are appalled by the fact rapist and killer was executed,how he was executed or was it because it actually shows a reversal from the typical so called honor killing where the victim is executed instead of the offender?

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I'm no fan of the death penalty (keep bumping up against that nagging question "what if he's innocent?"), but if we're going to execute people, do it properly--in full public spectacle, with all the attendant horror and brutality possible.

Is society was made of coral our world would be floral.
And what kind of a trial did they have? Has it been proven that this woman even exists? They could have just made the whole thing up to hide the crime of murder which they themselves committed. This is what we call and extrajudicial killing. I support the death penalty but only with DNA evidence and if she was raped there should be plenty of that.
