Two men were condemned for the abduction, rape, and murder of a young boy who was snatched after playing next to the house of one of the men.

Yemen is one of the few countries in the world where capital punishment is legal, and even children were in attendance to watch the gruesome event.

Refat, 28, and Khaled, 31, were condemned for the abduction, rape, and murder of a young boy who was snatched after playing next to the house of one of the men.

The pair reportedly dragged him into their home and raped him.

When sentencing the pair, The Daily Star reported that the judge said: “After the rape, they could not silence the cries of the child who begged for help, one of them grabbed a knife and cracked his neck.”

All capital punishment sentences must be ratified by the President of Yemen, and usually involve a firing squad.

Offences are usually violent acts such as murder, rape and terrorism, but the death penalty can also be used for acts contrary to Sharia Law, such as adultery and blasphemy.
