Views: 6350 Description: Al-Qaeda militants have stoned a woman to death in a southeastern Yemeni city they control after accusing her of adultery and prostitution, several witnesses said today.
The jihadists on Sunday "placed the woman in a hole in the middle of the courtyard of a military building and stoned her to death in the presence of dozens of residents" of Hadramawt provincial capital Mukalla, one witness said.
A local journalist at the scene confirmed the rare stoning, saying that the gunmen prevented photography of the execution.
"This was the first time we have seen such a thing," another witness said.
A copy of the purported verdict issued by the so-called Hadramawt court of Al-Qaeda's Ansar al-Sharia in December said the married woman "confessed in front of the judges to committing adultery".
Al-Qaeda's Yemen branch is considered by Washington to be the most dangerous affiliate of the global network.
