UKRAINE-Katya Koren, a 19-year-old beauty pageant contestant from Crimea in the Ukraine was stoned to death by Islamic extremists who believed she was violating Sharia law. The New York Daily News reports:
One of the suspects, identified as 16-year-old Bihal Gaziev, told authorities that he had no regrets about the stoning because the dark-haired Koren “violated the laws of Sharia.”
The teen’s battered body was found buried in the forest near her village in the Crimea section of the Ukraine. She had disappeared a week earlier.
