While you were busy liking someone’s post or uploading that cute photograph of your puppy, a young Syrian girl was reportedly being stoned to death in Syria.
Her crime? She had opened a Facebook account.
The incident took place in the Syrian city of Rakka. The girl, Fatoum Al-Jassem, was sentenced to death by stoning by Al-Reqqa religious court after ISIL militants took her to the court.
The court ruled that having a Facebook account was tantamount to adultery and thus sentenced her to death.
The court also described the opening of her Facebook account as an act of great wickedness that merited severe punishment.
