Forced to kneel, a woman receives 100 lashes for adultery in Muslim Craphole

An Afghan man and woman found guilty of adultery received 100 lashes on Monday in front of a crowd who filmed their punishment.

The footage, taken in the western province of Ghor, showed a woman wrapped in a head-to-toe burqa and a man each receive the punishment from a man in a turban wielding a leather whip, watched by a group of mostly seated men.

The two remained in a crouching position throughout and did not appear to cry out.
