A crowd of about 1,000 people gather in the stadium.
Four men force the child into the hole and bury her up to her neck. Fifty men then start to stone her.
After 10 minutes the child is dug up and nurses check her vital signs. She is still alive. So she is put back in the hole and the horror begins all over again.
Such is life in modern day Somalia.
The dead child’s name is Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow. Her crime? Well, there wasn’t one. After Aisha was raped by three men, her family reported the crime. Aisha was then detained and accused of adultery. No effort was made to identify or arrest the rapists.
Despite reports that she was 23 years old, Aisha was actually only 13. A man called Sheik Hayakalah told a radio station:
This is barbarity even for countries which embrace Islamic Sharia law. Nothing in the education or life experiences of average westerners can prepare us for such inhumanity. We can only hope that with vigilance we can manage to keep such Islamist extremists practices from contaminating our society.
