Somalia-based extremist group al-Shabaab said it has stoned to death a woman accused of marrying 11 men. The al-Qaeda-linked group’s radio arm claimed the execution was carried out on Wednesday after an ad hoc al-Shabaab court convicted her in the Lower Shabelle region. A report on The Washington Post site notes that she has been identified as 30-year-old Shukri Warsame. A self-proclaimed judge said the woman had confessed to having secretly married the men without seeking any divorces.
