Four women in Iraq were stoned to death by ISIS jihadists who claimed the women had been caught in the act of committing adultery, Kurdish activists have reported.

The women were killed in front of a large crowd in Mosul, one day after being arrested by members of the terrorist group and tried in a Shariah court, advocates said.

Kurdish activists said the women were raped by ISIS fighters, then taken to trial for adultery.

"The statement of the Sharia Court ... avoided mentioning the men," said Abdullah al-Malla, according to the pro-Kurdish Syrian agency ARA, the Independent reported.

"Apparently, the victims have been raped by ISIS jihadis and then stoned to death on charges of committing adultery," he said.
