No soft Saudi justice here.....

Nothing like a good sharia sentence...
Hardline Somali Islamists publicly whipped and jailed two men for watching pornography on their mobile phones, witnesses said on Saturday.

Shebab security officials caught the two Friday and were flogged by hooded men before hundreds of residents in the southern Kismayo town controlled by the hardline militia.

"The two young men were caught watching porn movies on their mobile phones by the security forces and after admitting their crimes they were punished according to the Islamic sharia," Sheikh Omar Mohamed, an Islamist official, told AFP by phone.

"Each of them got 25 lashes and 15 days imprisonment for involvement in evil deeds," he added.
Actually, isn't the 25 lashes quite light??? Afterall, that Saudi women got 60 lashes...
