Woman caned in public for having sex outside marriage (Photos)

An Indonesian woman was humiliated as she was publicly caned in Indonesia's Aceh province for having sex outside of marriage, a crime punishable under strict local Islamic law.

Dozens of people alongside religious officers gathered outside the mosque to watch the offenders as they received their punishment respectively.

In the photos, a masked sharia officer known as an 'algojo' was pictured canning the offenders between five to 45 lashes on their backs.

Public whipping is a common punishment for a range of offences, including gambling, drinking alcohol, and having gay sex or relations outside of marriage in Aceh, which is the only region in the world's biggest Muslim-majority country that imposes Islamic law.
