|Muslims who whacked a teen pregnant girl|
"People were looking at this like it was a show," said Mohamed Ould Babby, a local official.
"I was there, I saw young people coming to the plaza, I saw she was hit, it is the first time I've seen something like this." The woman, who was three months pregnant, has another son with her partner but the couple is not married.
According to Ansar Dine strict interpretation of Islamic law, that means that the couple had committed the crime of "fornication," punishable by 100 lashes.
A Muslim police officer in the city said six other women who had children outside of marriage would soon be "punished by Islamic law."
