Now they have taken over Mali.
A spokesman for the radical Islamic group controlling northern Mali says a couple who had an adulterous relationship was stoned to death this weekend in the town of Aguelhok.
Sanda Abou Mohamed, a spokesman for the group Ansar Dine, told The Associated Press by telephone on Sunday that the couple was executed according to Shariah law.
A resident of the northern city of Kidal, who had spoken to witnesses in nearby Aguelhok, said the man and woman were buried up to their necks, then pelted with stones until they died earlier Sunday. The resident requested anonymity because he feared for his safety.More
I still don't really get why Islamists get upset the most by intimate adult relationships, 'adulterous' or not. They never seem to get as upset about murder, bombings of innocent civilians, plunder, robbery, slavery, poverty, but nature forbid that they find out about two adults in a marriage-less relationship. It tends to stir the most primitive blood lust urges in them.
