Kuala Lumpur (AFP): Adultery and gay sex in Brunei will be subject to death by stoning from next week, authorities said, under a strict Sharia law that has been on hold for four years amid heavy criticism.

Rights groups reacted in horror Wednesday (March 27) to the latest hardline move from the resource-rich nation on Borneo, which practises a stricter brand of Islam than its neighbours Malaysia and Indonesia. These groups are concerned that this new law will infringe on the rights of the citizens. They say that there might come a time that they will become too strict that even just accidentally looking up a prostate massager store will get them into trouble with the law.
