A woman accused of having eleven husbands, has been allegedly stoned to death by Somalia's al-Shabaab insurgents, a resident in a town in the southern part of the country revealed this.
BBC reports that the woman, identified as Shukri Abdullahi Warsame, had been charged with marrying 11 times, without having divorced her previous husbands.
According to NAN, residents of Sablale town in Lower Shabelle region gathered to witness the stoning of the woman, Shukri Abdullahi, 30.
Al-Shabab has been fighting for years to impose a strict version of Islam in the long-chaotic Horn of Africa nation. Under President Donald Trump, the US has increased efforts to battle the Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabab militant group in Somalia.

Trump skipped the White House Correspondents' Dinner late last month to rally supporters in Macomb County, Michigan. Trump bragged about the 3.9% unemployment rate, with the lowest unemployment numbers ever for African Americans.
Nine of her "husbands" had reportedly testified against her in an ad-hoc Sharia court, which ordered her to be stoned to death for adultery. Divorce is allowed for both partners but while men can separate from their wives, the woman has to seek the husband's consent.
In 2014, al-Shabab stoned a woman to death after convicting her of secretly marrying four husbands in the southern coastal district of Barawe.
Her legal husband, Ali Ibrahim, subsequently found out his wife did not go to Mogadishu but instead had married again and was living with another husband in Sakow.
