Extremist Syrian organization named ISIS - Islamist State in Iraq and Syria - cut off a man's hand for allegedly stealing and tweeted the event and photos live. Daily Mail UK reports that ISIS claimed the man had asked for the punishment to be carried out in Maskanah, northern Syria, so he could be 'cleansed of his sins' of stealing.
The first tweet showed a blindfolded man being held down,
surrounded by a large group of rebels, moments before the amputation.
Two other images show a sword as it is brought down on the man's
wrist... and seconds after, as the man's hand lies separated.
