85 Lashes
Banda Aceh, Indonesia—Two men accused of having sex together are escorted by police into a Sharia courtroom on May 17. The men were later sentenced to 85 lashes in public. It was the first ever such punishment for homosexuality in Indonesia's conservative Aceh province, the only place in the country where gay sex is illegal. In the past, public caning sentences had only been given in cases of drinking alcohol and gambling.
