Crowd Watch As Man Who Raped Toddler Executed With Machine Gun In Street

Muhammad al-Maghrabi, 41, was shot by police who opened fire with a machine gun at a public square in Sana’a, Yemen.

al-Maghrabi was convicted of raping and killing three-year-old Rana Yahya Al-Matari.

Images released from his execution show him on the floor with his hands handcuffed behind his back.

A soldier towers over him with a machine gun aimed at his back before he fires.

The rapist’s punishment was watched by hundreds of baying spectators in the city’s main square.

al-Maghrabi was brought to the spot by police who laid him down onto a white rug.

The crowd, of mostly men, took out their mobile phones to record the event.

Television stations also broadcast his death to viewers at home.

The last time that a Yemini was executed in this manner was in 2009, when a man was punished and killed for raping and murdering an 11-year-old.

Yemen punishes murderers with a death sentence and beheading is another common punishment.

However, Sharia law does not specify what type of method should be used for a criminal’s punishment.
