Where Adultery is a Capital Crime

Over on her blog, Jen Klyse is doing an excellent job covering the case of Amina Lawal, the Nigerian woman who is trying to appeal a sentence of death given her by a Sharia court for the heinous crime of adultery. Sharia is religious law that is often based on a very strict interpretation of the Koran; hence the definition of adultery as a crime worthy of the death penalty. Americans should be paying more attention to the “justice” handed out by these courts, so kudos to Jen for keeping it on the radar.
