A man and a woman have been stoned to death for adultery in separate executions in jihadist-controlled areas of Syria, an anti-regime group reported Tuesday.The man was executed in Idlib province in an area controlled by Islamist groups including the Nusra Front, Al-Qaeda's official affiliate in Syria, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks violence on all sides of Syria's civil war.It is the first documented case of a man being stoned to death for adultery since Syria descended into civil war in 2011 and hard-line Islamist groups emerged as powerful players in areas that slipped from government control, the Observatory said.The woman's execution was the third of its kind in ISIS-run territories in Syria, according to the Observatory.
