Sharia in Action: Women's Rights Activist Tortured and Killed by IS in Iraq

Sameera Salih Ali al-Nuaimy, a lawyer, was seized from her home by Islamic State fighters last week and tortured for several days before a masked firing squad executed her in public on Monday.

Her crime?  Apostasy.

Ms. Nuaimy had posted comments on her Facebook page condemning the “barbaric” bombing and destroying of mosques and shrines in Mosul, a northern Iraqi city, by the Islamic State, the militant group also known as ISIS or ISIL. She was convicted of apostasy by a “so-called court,” Mr. Zeid said, adding that her family had been barred from giving her a funeral.
