A woman has been stoned death in Somalia after a court run by militant Islamist group Al-Shabab convicted her of polyandry, reports a media outlet affiliated to the militants.

Shukri Abdullahi Warsame was accused of marrying 11 times, without divorcing previous husbands.

She has buried neck-deep and pelted to death with stones by Al-Shabab fighters in Sablale town in the Lower Shabelle region.

In 2014, Al-Shabab stoned a woman to death after convicting her of secretly marrying four husbands in the southern coastal district of Barawe.
