(AFP) – Al-Qaida militants in southeastern Yemen have publicly flogged 10 men in a new sign of their growing control over the lawless region, witnesses and an official said on Friday.
The men were whipped in Al-Shihr, a coastal town in Hadramawt province, after being summarily convicted of insulting God and consuming alcohol and drugs, the official said.
Dozens of people attended the flogging, which is said to follow the Islamic sharia law.
Witnesses said each man received between 80 and 100 lashes and that both screamed in pain.
