Religious extremism: Muslim woman passes out after she was flogged publicly for engaging in extramarital affair 

A woman from the Indonesian city of Banda Aceh collapsed in agony after being publicly flogged for having sex outside of marriage.

Together with her partner, the unnamed woman was sentenced to 17 strokes of the cane.

An official in a head-to-toe brown cloak with their identity obscured by a mask administered the punishment.

The woman, who was dressed in traditional Islamic garb, was flogged with a bamboo cane.

Images show her slumped to the ground in agony as the punishment is administered.

At the same event, her partner was flogged.

 Aceh is the only Indonesian province that follows Sharia law, which is based on a radical interpretation of Islam’s holy book, the Quran.

The harshest sentences, such as those for homosexuality, can carry up to 150 lashes. Victims frequently pass out or need to be hospitalized during their sentences.
