Paedophiles who raped boy, 12, executed in the street in front of mob

Wadah Refat and Mohamed Khaled were marched at gunpoint through a baying mob of bloodthirsty spectators who gathered to watch the grizzly spectacle in the port city of Aden. Horrifying images from the scene show the men lying face down before being shot dead by a firing squad. Refat, 28, and Khaled, 31, were sentenced to death for abducting, raping and murdering the boy.

Their trial was told the perverts’ young victim was playing outside the house of one of the men who dragged him inside and carried out their sickening attack.

When sentencing the pair, a judge said: “After the rape, they could not silence the cries of the child who begged for help, one of them grabbed a knife and cracked his neck.”

Death sentences in Yemen are are usually carried out by firing squad though stoning, hanging and beheadinf are permitted under the country’s penal code. Executions are not always held in public.

Human Rights Watch director Sarah Leah Whitson condemned the execution.

She said: “Public execution is an even more grotesque violation of human rights, particularly in a country where the ability of the accused to obtain adequate legal representation and the coverage of the process is highly limited.”

Sharia law is applied in Yemen and serves as the basis for all legislation in the country.

Capital crimes include violent acts like murder, rape or terrorism or in cases of “Hudud” offences under Sharia law such as adultery, sexual misconduct, sodomy, prostitution, blasphemy and apostasy.

Kidnapping, violent robbery, drug trafficking and treason can also possibly carry a death sentence depending on the circumstances.

Last year three paedophiles were publicly shot and hanged from cranes after brutally raping and killing a 10-year-old boy.
