Somalia: Man faces 100 lashes for rape and fornication

Alshabaab Islamic court has on Monday sentenced 100 lashes to a middle aged man, Husein Hefow Hasan, for raping a young girl and committing fornication.

Masked men of the Alqaida-linked armed group known as Alshabaab have lashed the man 100 times after he confessed during a court hearing to the charge of fornication and rape.

The punishment was carried out in Kunya Barow district of the Lower Shabelleh Region before hundreds of spectators, mostly women and children.  According to the teaching of Islam, such flogging is not mean to kill but it is instead intended as disciplinary action.
