This horrific video shows a police officer flogging a cowering woman in the street as a crowd watches without protesting or intervening.
The crime that prompted this horrendous assault? She had ridden in a car with a man who she wasn’t related to, an offense that is prohibited by Sudan’s public order law.
The video is believed to have been taken in Khartoum, the capital, and shows the terrified and bewildered woman crying out in pain as lash after vicious lash rains down.
