A  woman has been pictured falling to the floor in agony while being flogged for having sex outside of marriage in Indonesia. 

The woman and her partner were sentenced to 17 lashes for breaking Sharia law, which prohibits men and women from being close to one another unless they are married or family. 

The pair were both caned by the ‘executor’ of the Sharia Police, known as the Algojo, in front of an audience in the city of Banda Aceh, on the island of Sumatra. 

Aceh is the only province in the country which has implemented Sharia law – which sees rules governed by a strict interpretation of Islam’s holy book the Quran.
