BAGHDAD - Islamic State militants in Iraq stoned a man to death in the northern city of Mosul after one of their courts sentenced him to die for the crime of adultery, witnesses said on Friday.

The stoning, which happened on Thursday, was the first known instance of the punishment by Islamic State militants in Iraq, although it has been previously reported in Syria.
