2 women caned for ‘attempting lesbian sex’ in Malaysia

Two women have been caned in Malaysia after being found guilty of attempting to have sex with each other in what is said to be the first case of such a punishment imposed on women for being lesbians.

The public caning took place in the conservative state of Terengganu in the northeast of the country on Monday. The women were caned six times each in the Sharia High Court in front of around 100 people.
