LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The sickening five-minute video emerged on ISIS-affiliated Web pages recently. It is not clear when the footage was actually shot and has not been independently verified.

A militant orders her to be "content and happy" that she is about to be stoned to death because, he says, her death has been ordered by God and is therefore required under Islamic law.

Act now, please help save fellow Christians from genocide!

Asking her is she is now willing to "submit to God" and be stoned to death, the young woman replies "yes," before pleading with her father to forgive her.

"Don't call me father," he tells his daughter, who responds by asking him to pray for her.

The woman is seen pleading for her life before being stoned to death by men - including her father.

The men shower rocks down upon her. The woman's father then steps forward with a large stone and the video fades to black.

It is believed he had been granted the barbaric "honor" of being allowed end the life of the daughter he felt had betrayed both him and her religion.

The exact accusations against the woman remain sketchy, although the cleric who appears at the start of mobile phone-filmed clip accuses her of committing adultery.


In a related incident, a man was executed in Idlib province in an area controlled by Islamist groups including the Nusra Front, al Qaeda's official affiliate in Syria.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, it's the first documented case of a man being stoned to death for adultery since Syria descended into civil war in 2011.
