A 41-year-old Muslim man named Muhammad al-Maghrabi was gunned down in the streets of Yemen by police after he was convicted of raping and murdering a girl, age 3.
He was killed by machine gun fire.
Images show him on the ground with his hands cuffed behind his back, while scores of people look on.
The Express has the story:
Muhammad … al-Maghrabi was convicted of raping and killing three-year-old Rana Yahya Al-Matari. …
A soldier towers over him with a machine gun aimed at his back before he fires.
The rapist’s punishment was was watched by hundreds of baying spectators in the city’s main square.
Mr al-Maghrabi was bought to the spot by police who laid him down onto a white rug.
The crowd, of mostly men, took out their mobile phones to record the event.
Television stations also broadcast the event to viewers at home.
The last time that a Yemini was executed in this manner was 2009 when a man was punished and killed for raping and murdering an 11-year-old.
Yemen punishes murderers with a death sentence and beheading is another common punishment.
However, Sharia law does not specify what type of method can be used for a criminal’s punishment.
