Three convicted paedophiles were, on Wednesday, shot, then hanged in a public square in Yemen after they raped and killed a 10-year-old boy.
The men, last October, abducted the young boy who was headed to his grandmother’s house. They tortured him and hid his body in an abandoned home.
Abdul Jalil al-Ashhab, 19, Mohammed Said al-‘Uqri, 27, and Ghaleb al-Rashdi, also 19, were all executed by a firing squad. Their bodies were then hanged in the city of Sana’a.
Reports say they were shot five times in the heart and their bodies were hanged from a crane as a warning to others who might be planning to commit similar crimes.
