Three convicted paedophiles have been shot then hanged in a public square after raping and killing a 10-year-old boy.

The evil men had tortured the boy before choking him and hiding his body in an abandoned house,

reports in the Middle East claim. 

Abdul Jalil al-Ashhab, 19, Mohammed Said al-‘Uqri, 27, and Ghaleb al-Rashdi, also 19, were all executed by a firing squad yesterday.

The young boy was abducted while heading to his grandmother’s house, then handcuffed and attacked in a nearby school.

His body was found four days later.

Yemen’s legal system allows people to be killed by shooting, hanging and beheading.
