SUDANESE CHILD RAPISTS WHIPPED AND SENTENCED TO HANG FOR CHILD RAPE
January 21, 2007: the Sudanese central Khartoum criminal court convicted Mutassim Khairallah, 35, and Imad Tabben, 18, of raping and then suffocating Muram Awad Sadiq last October before dumping her body down a well.
No date was set for the hanging, but the whipping was carried out on the spot.
The two were dragged from the courthouse and publicly lashed in front of hundreds of cheering onlookers. After being whipped, the men were returned to prison to await a date for their execution. (Sources: Agence France-Presse, 21/01/2007)
