Islamists Stone Couple for Adultery in Mali

USAID called Mali an "enlightened democracy." Things have changes since Islamists flooded in after the Libya War.


Islamists in control of northern Mali said they forced a man and a woman into two holes and stoned them to death for committing adultery in the lawless region.

Witnesses watched quietly as Islamists executed the two by pelting them with rocks in the remote Aguelhok town, according to a local resident.
