Man Collapses After Being Flogged For Breaking Islamic Law

A 27-year-old Indonesian man collapsed while
being publicly caned for standing with a woman
who is not his wife in contravention of strict
Islamic laws.

Herizal bin Yunus, who was one of
eight people publicly punished on Monday for
breaking the province's Islamic regulations,
fainted after being caned eight times in front of
a crowd in Aceh.

Officials carried him off stage after he
collapsed during the punishment outside a
mosque in the provincial capital Banda Aceh.

But after he was examined by a doctor, the
officials were told he was in good health, and
he was taken back up on stage to be flogged
another 14 times.

Herizal had been sentenced to be caned a total
of 22 times for breaking the Islamic laws that
forbid people in Aceh from spending time with
members of the opposite sex who are not their
husband or wife.
