Married couple stoned to death for committing adultery

A married couple accused of adultery has been stoned to death in the remote Northern Mali city of Aguelhok. They were executed by radical Islamists in northern Mali under the strict Sharia law according to the spokesman for the radical Ansar Dine group.

Sanda Ould Bounama, who spoke on behalf of the group, said: “These two people were married and had extra-conjugal relations. Our men on the ground in Aguelhok applied Sharia (Islamic law).
“They both died right away and even asked for this application. We don’t have to answer to anyone over the application of Sharia.”
A source, who pleaded anonymity for fear of a reprisal attack, told the Associated Press that the couple was buried up to the neck and pelted with stones until they died.

Mali, a formerly peaceful West African nation has been plagued by conflict due to the activities of Al-Qaida linked radical Islamists and Tuareg rebels who have succeeded in taking over a large part of the North of the country displacing over 300,000 people.

Many residents of Northern Mali have practiced Islam for centuries but the model being enforced by the radical group have sparked protests in recent months.

It is somehow hard to believe that the executed couple actually asked to be stoned to death according to the submission of the Ansar Dine spokesman, or what do you think?
