MUSLIM WATCH:3 women caned in Malaysia for adultery

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia-For the first time, Malaysian authorities have caned three Muslim women under Islamic law for acts of adultery, the Malaysian national news agency Bernama said.Home Minister Hishamuddin Hussein announced the canings Wednesday, saying the penalty was carried out February 9 at a women's prison near Kuala Lumpur.The canings-a punishment that persists across Malaysian society since the British colonial era of the 19th century-have been denounced by one Amnesty International official, who says "caning is tantamount to torture."But Hishamuddin said the punishment was carried out "to educate and make the offenders realize their mistakes and to return to the right path"...
