A man has been stoned to death in Somalia for a homosexual sex act, reports say.
Militant al-Shabab fighters buried a blindfolded man to his waist and threw stones at him until he died, according to resident, Yusuf Abdi.
An al-Shabab official said one of its judges sentenced the man to death because he forced a 13-year-old boy to have sex with him.
Al-Shabab enforces a conservative brand of Islam in areas it controls.
Sheikh Ibrahim Ali, a Somali religious leader in Mogadishu, said homosexuality is controversial inside Islam.
One strict reading of Islamic law, he said, is that a married man who engages in a homosexual act should be killed.
