Religious officer canes an Acehnese man 100 times for having sex outside marriage

A religious officer canes an Acehnese man (L) 100 times for having sex outside marriage, which is against Sharia law, in Banda Aceh on November 28, 2016. Aceh is the only province in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country that imposes sharia law. People can face floggings for a range of offences -- from gambling, to drinking alcohol, to gay sex. / AFP PHOTO / CHAIDEER MAHYUDDIN
