  • The canings took place in public in the conservative state of Aceh which has strict Sharia code 
  • Earlier this year, authorities made move to end the practice of outdoor caning in front of large crowds 
  • They were concerned about children seeing the brutal punishments, proposed they take place in prison
  • Local hardline Islamist groups staged a protest about the proposal and they were backed by local MPs  

Women accused of being prostitutes and a man have been publicly caned in Indonesia’s Aceh province – despite moves earlier this year for the punishments to be carried out in prison.


These pictures show the kneeling women and a man, who stood for his caning, grimacing in pain after being beaten for violations of the conservative state’s strict Sharia code.


After being led out in front of a crowd at a stadium in the city of Lhokseumawe, the second largest city on Aceh, the two women and the man are hit several times by a masked man wielding a cane.
