Three men have been publicly shot and hanged after they were found guilty of raping and killing a 10-year-old boy in Yemen.
The paedophiles were executed yesterday in the country’s capital Sana’a where their bodies were put on display to discourage others from carrying out similar attacks.
They were then executed with three shots aiming for the heart, before being winched into the air as a warning to other potential offenders.
According to media in the Middle East, the three men kidnapped the young boy as he headed to his grandmother’s house in the village of Na’wa on October 29.
The trio covered the child’s mouth with a cloth and took him to a nearby school, where they carried out their horrific crimes. After torturing and raping the boy, they choked him to death and hid his body in an abandoned house.
