INDONESIA TSUNAMI ISLAMIC LAW

A Shariah official canes an Acehnese woman after she was convicted of unlawful contact between unmarried man and woman, as part of the implementation of Islamic Shariah law, outside a mosque in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, Friday, Jan. 27, 2006. Indonesian government agreed to allow Sharia law in Aceh as part of a peace settlement to end three decades of separatist conflict in the religiously conservative province. Many in the region believe that the Dec. 26, 2004 tsunami that killed more than 131,000 in the province alone was an act of divine vengeance against a people who had strayed too far from religious piety and implementing Shariah law was a way of putting things right and appeasing Allah.
