  SACRIFICE (DU'A KHALIL ASWAD) 36X48IN MIXED MEDIA    STONED TO DEATH FOR CHOOSING LOVE OVER RELIGION.    THIS IS MODERN DAY WITCH-HUNT : MUST BE 18 TO WACH GRAPHIC VIOLENT VIDEO OF MURDER.    STONING OF DU'A .  THIS IS WRONG. IT IS INHUMANE. STOP STONING NOW!     Aswad was taken to the town square;   according to reports she was stripped naked to symbolize that she had dishonored her family and religion.  In the video, though stripped from the waist down, she is wearing an orange sport jacket and black underwear, and at least some of the crowd tries to keep her lower body covered with what looks like another jacket. During the stoning, which lasted approximately 30 minutes, Aswad can be seen in the video attempting to sit up and calling for help as the crowd taunts her and repeatedly throws a large chunk of rock or concrete on her head.   After her death in the town square, Aswad's body was tied behind a car and dragged through the streets.  She was buried with the remains of a dog, to disrespect her.    Eventually, her body was "exhumed and sent to the Medico-Legal Institute in Mosul so that tests could be performed to see whether she had died a virgin ."  COPIED FROM THE WEB.
