A 34-year-old woman pictured above  was flogged with a rattan cane at least seven times for staying so close to a man who is not her husband. The 32-year-old man in question was also flogged seven times.

“It hurts so bad,” the woman said, as cited by AFP, raising her arms into the air.


On Monday, a total of five people, which included two women and three men, were caned outside a mosque in the conservative province of Aceh in Indonesia, which adheres to Sharia law.

Two 19-year-old university students, received 100 lashes, after confessing to having sex outside marriage. A man found guilty of sex outside marriage was also flogged at least 22 times by the person delivering the punishment, who was dressed in long robes and a hood. His partner, who is two-months pregnant, is still waiting for her fate to be decided.
