A woman in Indonesia, was hospitalized after being lashed at a public ceremony for standing too close to a man she wasn't married too.

The 30-year-old woman who was identified as Mazidah of Lhokseumawe, was convicted of violating an Islamic law, prohibiting females from being in the presence of a man other than their husbands.

The public lashing took place on Friday, after morning prayers.

A large crowd of men, women, and children, gathered in the public square to watch the lashing.

Mazidah, who is married, was lashed 100 times.

The lashing was interrupted several times, because the woman cried out in pain.

Mazidah was then taken to a hospital, after suffering severe injuries to her back as a result of the lashing.

The 34-year-old man who was standing too close to Mazidah, also got 100 lashes in public, but he did not suffer any injuries.
