Shocking photographs have emerged of young Indonesians being whipped until they collapse for having sex outside of marriage.
The barbaric caning was handed down by Islamic legislators after eight locals were deemed to have broken strict Sharia law which condemns any sexual contact between a man and a woman if they are not married.
The beatings occurred in Aceh, which is the only province in the country which implements Sharia law in full.
Herizal bin Yunus, 27, fainted after being caned eight times in front of a crowd in Aceh, the only province of the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country that imposes sharia law.
Officials carried him off stage after he collapsed during the punishment outside a mosque in the provincial capital Banda Aceh, which was carried out by a religious official dressed in an all-encompassing, hooded cloak.
