A girl has been stoned to death after being handed the conviction by a Sharia court for opening a Facebook account, it has been claimed.

The girl, named in media reports as Fatoum Al-Jassem, was sentenced to death by a Sharia court in Al-Reqqa, Syria, after it ruled having a Facebook account was immoral behavior, says a report in MailOnline.

The report says she was taken to the court by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants after she was caught using the social networking site. It quotes as disclosing that “the court, which is under the jurisdiction of ISIS, ruled the act of being a member of the social network deserved to be punished the same way as adultery.”

The report further quotes CNN as reporting that women in the town have been ordered by ISIS via posters to ‘cover up their beauty’ and banned from seeing male doctors or even leaving home without a male relative
