Mali: Unmarried Couple stoned to death for living together

(BAMAKO) An unmarried couple has been stoned to death in the Kidal region of Mali.
Local residents were invited by Islamists to take part in the public punishment of this unlucky couple for violating “Islamic law”.  As per Sharia law, holes were dug into the ground and the victims placed inside.  The holes are then back filled leaving the top half of the victim above ground but unable to escape. You can guess the rest.

The above was about the stoning of an unmarried couple in Mali. Here are a few other snippets of Islamic intolerance in Africa, these past few days:

Two soldiers were injured on Wednesday when a female suicide bomber attacked a military post located behind a camp for internally displaced persons in Konduga town of Borno State.

Two men had their hands chopped off by the local Al-Shabab terrorist group ,Thursday after a sharia court convicted them of breaking into a shop and stealing about $500.

6 people were killed in Mogadishu, when attempts to defuse a car bomb failed killing  three police officers, two agents from Somalia's National Intelligence Service. and an expert from U.N. Mine Action 

Around 115 people were killed in ethnic and religiously fuelled violence in southeaster town of Bangassou in the Central African Republic (CAR) over the weekend, The mainly Christian anti-Balaka militia attacked Islamic civilians and a UN office in the town bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo, before being pushed back by UN peacekeepers and airstrikes.
