A judge for an Islamic militant group in Somalia says a 20-year-old girl has been stoned to death and her boyfriend given 100 lashes for having an affair.

Sheikh Ibrahim Abdirahman, the judge for the group al-Shabab, says the woman was killed Tuesday in front of a crowd of some 200 people near the town of Wajid.

Abdirahman says the 20-year-old woman had an affair with a 29-year-old unmarried man and gave birth to a stillborn child.

The militants that control much of southern Somalia and have links to al-Qaida have instituted a conservative reading of Islam's Sharia law.

The stoning death was at least the fourth for adultery in Somalia over the last year. It was the second time a female has been killed.
