Shocking images show Wadah Refat and Mohamed Khaled being marched at gunpoint through crowds for the public execution.
The Daily Star reports
Hundreds of bloodthirsty spectators gathered to watch the nonces being executed in the Yemen port city of Aden.
Even kids were spotted in the front row, as police held AK-47s to the backs of the men.
As crowds watched on, the pair were gunned down by the Yemeni firing squad.
Refat, 28, and Khaled, 31, were sentenced to capital punished for abducting, raping and murdering the boy.
A court heard the boy was playing next to the house of one of the men who dragged him home and raped him.
When sentencing the pair, a judge said: “After the rape, they could not silence the cries of the child who begged for help, one of them grabbed a knife and cracked his neck.”
Yemen is one of the few countries in the world here capital punishment is legal.
But the death penalty can also be used for acts contrary to Sharia Law, such as adultery and blasphemy.
Three nonces were previously shot dead and hung from cranes after raping and murdering a boy.
Human Rights Watch director Sarah Leah Whitson condemned the sentencing in Yemen.
She said: “Public execution is an even more grotesque violation of human rights, particularly in a country where the ability of the accused to obtain adequate legal representation and the coverage of the process is highly limited.”
