Aceh, at the tip of Sumatra, is the only region in Muslim-majority Indonesia to impose Islamic syariah law, which allows flogging for a range of offences including prostitution, gambling, adultery, drinking alcohol, and gay sex. The punishment was handed down Monday in Langsa city where dozens gathered to watch the pair get lashed, despite bans on crowds over coronavirus fears. The two hijab-wearing suspects were arrested in March along with five sex workers, who could also face a flogging if found guilty of violating Islamic law, said Mr Aji Asmanuddin, head of Langsa's Islamic syariah agency. Rights groups have slammed public caning as cruel, and Indonesia's President Joko Widodo has called for it to end.
