Al-Shabab Stones Somali Mother of 8 to Death

Al-Shabab militants in Somalia have stoned a mother of eight to death for allegedly committing adultery.

Hundreds of residents gathered at a public square in the town of Saakow, about 400 kilometers south of Mogadishu, to watch the execution on Thursday, residents said.

In an audio posted on an al-Shabab website, an al-Shabab judge said the woman, identified as Habiba Ali Ishaq, married a second husband while already married to another man, and as a result was convicted for adultery.
