Today, thousands of people gathered in the Sana’a, the Capital of Yemen to witness the public execution of a paedophile who raped and murdered a three-year-old girl.
41-year-old Mohammed al-Moghrabi was sentenced to death for his sickening June 25 crimes by a court run by the Shiite Huthi rebels who control the city.
The gruesome crime coincided with the first day of Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, and sparked anger among the people in the city.
Moghrabi was escorted by heavily armed police men to the Tahrir Square where he was executed amid fears the angry crowd could lynch him.
The convicted paedophile was first given 100 lashes and then made to lie flat, his face on the ground, and killed by multiple gunshots by security forces as vast crowd cheered and took photos at the scene.
The public execution was reportedly aired on Huthi-run media in Yemen, to serve as a warning to the public by the Shiite rebels’ efforts to combat crime in their areas.
