The teenagers both 18, who were marched on to a stage in front of a mosque in the provincial capital of Banda Aceh, were handed the flogging sentence under strict Sharia law in the province, which forbids intimate displays in public.

They were whipped 17 times before Banda Aceh deputy mayor Zainal Arifin addressed the crowd. He said;

‘People outside of Aceh who think Islamic Sharia is cruel can now see that it is actually very tolerant and humane.

It was also learnt that a 35-year-old man was also flogged with a rattan cane for being intimate with a woman – aged 40 – in a local grocery store.  Here are photos of the two teenagers being flogged for hugging;
