Two paedophiles, 28 and 31, are publicly shot dead.

Yemen has executed two men for abducting, raping and murdering a 12-year-old boy by shooting them in public. 
Wadah Refat, 28, and Mohamed Khaled, 31, had been convicted of raping and murdering a boy named Mohamed Saad in May last year.
Hundreds had gathered in the port city of Aden on Thursday to watch the men get shot dead in front of the baying crowd.
The boy had been playing next to a house where one of them lived, when the pair set upon him, dragged him into the home and raped him.

'After the rape, they could not silence the cries of the child, who begged for help, so one of them grabbed a knife and slit his throat,' court documents seen by El Mundo states.
A 33-year-old woman has also been sentenced to death for helping Refat and Khaled dismember the boy's body.
Her execution has been postponed as she is pregnant, according to the website.
Yemen has one of the highest execution rates per capita in the world, and shooting is the most common method.
Islamic Sharia law is applied in the country and a number of crimes are punishable by death, including murder, rape and terrorism.
