Summary: 

Three paedophiles were publicly shot then hanged from a crane in Yemen  as punishment for raping and killing a ten-year-old boy. Yemen, south of Saudi Arabia, is one of the world’s top executors with capital punishment for violent crimes including murder, rape, and terrorism. The death penalty can also theoretically be used in cases of Islamic or ‘Hudud’ offences under Sharia law such as adultery, sexual misconduct, sodomy, prostitution, blasphemy and apostasy. All sentences are carried out by shooting although stoning, hanging, and beheading are also permitted within the Yemeni penal code.
