Woman flogged 7 times for standing too close to man in Aceh, Indonesia

A total of five people, including two women and three men, were on Monday, caned outside a mosque in the conservative province of Aceh in Indonesia, which adheres to Sharia law.
A 34-year-old woman (pictured) was flogged with a rattan cane at least seven times for being in close  proximity to a man who is not her husband.
The 32-year-old male who was with her was also flogged seven times.

"It hurts so bad," the woman said, as cited by AFP, raising her arms into the air.

Two university students, both 19, received 100 lashes, after confessing to having sex outside marriage. A man found guilty of sex outside marriage was also flogged at least 22 times by the person delivering the punishment, who was dressed in long robes and a hood. His partner, who is two-months pregnant, is still waiting for her fate to be decided.
