A woman in Indonesia was canned 23 times in front of a jeering crowd for breaking the Sharia law, it has been reported. The woman was one of 13 people flogged on Monday at a mosque.
The picture shows the woman scream out in pain as punishment of flogging is meted out to her for allegedly being caught standing too close to her boyfriend.
The incident is of Aceh, the only province in Indonesia that enforces sharia law. In this province people face floggings for a range of offences, including gambling, drinking alcohol and gay sex.
A 22-year-old pregnant woman, one of the offenders, was not flogged but was told she'll be punished after she has given birth.
The six couples were found guilty of breaking Islamic law that bans intimacy - no touching, hugging and kissing - between unmarried people.
