sharia3Heart-wrenching images show a screaming young woman flogged in front of a jeering crowd for breaking Islamic laws as floggings reportedly spike in Indonesian province.


An unidentified woman screamed out in pain as she was caned 23 times in Indonesia’s Aceh for breaking the province’s strict Islamic law forbidding intimacy between unmarried couples.


Aceh is the only province in Indonesia that enforces sharia law and people face floggings for a range of offences, including gambling, drinking alcohol and gay sex.


She was one of 13 people – aged between 21-30 – to be flogged on Monday at a mosque.


The woman was allegedly caught standing too close to her boyfriend.


The six couples were found guilty of breaking Islamic law that bans intimacy – no touching, hugging and kissing – between unmarried people.


One man was even caned for spending time with a member of the opposite sex in a private location, which could lead to adultery.
