    Somali 'killer' stoned to death

    Hardline Islamist militiamen in Somalia have stoned to death a man accused of raping and murdering a woman.

    The execution took place in front of a large crowd in the town of Wanlaweyn, about 90km (55 miles) south of the capital Mogadishu.

    The man was convicted by an unofficial court set up by the al-Shabab movement.

    On Thursday in Mogadishu, al-Shabab - which advocates a strict form of Sharia - publicly amputated a hand and a foot from each of four men accused of theft.

    "This man was accused of raping and killing an 18-year-old girl in May this year. The court found him guilty of the charges brought against him," Sheikh Mohamed Saleban, a local al-Shabab official, told AFP news agency on Sunday.
    "Ten masked men from the al-Shabab forces stoned him to death in front of everyone. They had dug a hole, buried him to his neck before throwing stones at him," he told AFP.

    That sounds horrific (cannot defend yourself with your hands). I'm not saying the guy didn't deserve this--just that it sounds like a very painful way to go. I wonder if this would reduce the number of rapes with murder in our country if we punished them in this manner.

    I believe that the rape rate would drop dramatically if we stoned rapists to death.

    It would in Somalia.
    Rapes has happened with nothing occuring because there was little rule and order.
    If a man knows he will be stoned to death, he'll think twice before whipping it out imo.

    As much as i despise Al shabab for their goals and Taliban links, if they do what everyone else failed. Bring stability and law and order into Somalia. Then they have my gratitude

    It's kind of like bowling but with only one pin.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Stoning a man to death is a good ruling?

    Compared to the usual letting the man off with a slap on the back or even worse, the women getting the stoning for being raped. Hell yes

    Maybe this will prevent any Somali men raping their women if they know they will get the same treatment.

    I didn't realize rape was a crime in Somalia.

    It has been enforced since Al Shabab and the Islamic Courts came into action.

    If a Somali women was raped before that, she would keep it to herself to not shame her tribe.

    Re: Somali 'killer' stoned to death

    I remember in 06, one of the first thing the Islamic Courts did was by implementing Sharia law practically enforced a 'Eye for an Eye' scene in which a killer would be killed by a family member of the victim.

    Example:
    BBC NEWS | Africa | Somali boy executes dad's killer

    A Somali teenager has stabbed to death his father's killer in a public execution ordered by an Islamic court.

    Large crowds gathered at a Koranic school in Somalia's capital to watch 16-year-old Mohamed Moallim, stab Omar Hussein in the head and throat
