Islamists in southern Somalia have stoned a man to death for adultery but spared his pregnant girlfriend until she gives birth.

Abas Hussein Abdirahman, 33, was killed in front of a crowd of some 300 people in the port town of Merka.

An official from the al-Shabab group said the woman would be killed after she has had her baby.

This is the third time Islamists have stoned a person to death for adultery in the past year.

“He was screaming and blood was pouring from his head during the stoning. After seven minutes he stopped moving,” an eyewitness told the BBC.

Meanwhile, President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed has accused al-Shabab of spoiling the image of Islam by killing people and harassing women. “Their actions have nothing to do with Islam,” said the moderate Islamist during a ceremony at which he nominated a new administration for the capital, Mogadishu.

A 13-year-old girl was stoned to death for adultery in the southern town of Kismayo last year.

Human rights groups said she had been raped.

The poor buggers who live there are faced with an array of religious nutballs, each claiming to have the correct version of superstititious tyranny over their daily lives.

UPDATE: The baby was stillborn. She was then stoned to death. No being worthy of the name “human” can rationalize away such cruelty.

    Well let’s sit in judgment. Its another country. Another land. Another set of laws.

    It is a country that the US invaded and abandoned a decade and half ago. In the abandonment it left a government, and a people still mired in disarray.

    In this country it is clear. Adultry is a serious crime. There is a defined and clear punishment. Everyone knew that. Including the lawbreakers.

    It is clear that Texas kills mental, mentally retarded, and the insane for crimes listed on their books. One cannot judge inhumanity when a part of the United States commits inhouse inhumanity in its legal judgment.

    The ten commandments are clear. One law is… Though shall not kill another human. Only humans invented exceptions to that clear, unequivocal law.

    Its a shame what these Somalian rulers are doing. It is a shame what Texas does. While Texas and other capital punishment states practice their version of social revenge, anyone from the USA cannot apply a higher moral code to another nation.

        One of the ongoing problems in the United States is the obvious fact much of the population doesn’t know the difference between ‘logic’ and ’emotion’.

        It seems to me that’s pretty much why the U.S. military cleared out of Somalia with their tails tucked firmly between their legs.

        Now that disgusted me.

      And your post is the epitome of succinct, proud, upstanding, caring, Made In America, Christian bigotry.
