Syria militants execute woman for “adultery”

Al-Qaeda-linked militants have publicly executed a woman accused of adultery in northwestern Syria, a monitoring group said Wednesday.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that in total 14 people had been executed for alleged adultery or homosexuality in the war-torn country since July, half of them women.

It released a video showing fighters from Al-Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, tying up a woman and shooting her in a square in the town of Maaret Masirin in the province of Idlib.

A crowd of civilians and fighters are seen watching, as a jihadist accuses the woman of “corrupting the earth, and adultery”.

Islamic law views all sex outside marriage as a punishable crime.
