Woman To Be Caned For Being Raped By 8 Men

In Indonesia’s Aceh province, a partial version of Islamic law can be enforced — like when this woman was arrested by Sharia police for wearing tight jeans and no head scarf.

A woman in Indonesia could face a public caning of nine lashes after she was accused of having an affair with a married man, gang-raped by eight men, and turned over to Islamic police last week in the conservative Aceh province in the western part of the country.

The 25-year-old widow reported that she was attacked by a group of men who allegedly found her with the married man at her home early on May 1. The men apparently then gang-raped her, beat the 40-year-old man, and dumped sewage on both of them. Afterwards she was taken to Aceh’s Islamic authorities — not to report the incident, but to be charged for violating local religious law.
