A stoning to death in Somalia

I do not usually recommend reading the Daily Mail but Amnesty supporters may wish to look at this report of a death by stoning, illustrated with photographs.  The face of the victim in one photo is pixellated on grounds of taste to hide his horrific end.  It is, as the article says, a punishment that belongs in the Dark Ages.  This cruel punishment should not survive in the 21st century.
