Indonesia’s Aceh whips amorous couples

A group of unmarried couples were whipped in Indonesia’s Aceh province on Thursday after they were caught behaving amorously — a crime under the conservative region’s Islamic law.

Flogging is common for a range of offences in the region at the tip of Sumatra island, including gambling, drinking alcohol and having gay sex. It is the only province in the world’s biggest Muslim-majority country that imposes Islamic law.

The five couples flogged Thursday received between four and 22 strokes from a rattan cane outside a mosque in the provincial capital, Banda Aceh, after they served several months in prison.
