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.BBC NEWS | Africa | Somali 'killer' stoned to death"Ten masked men from the al-Shabab forces stoned him to death in front of everyone.

Better the man than the women. Good ruling shockingly enough Al Shabab
