Men and women have been pictured screaming out in pain and complete horror as they are being whipped in public for committing adultery. 

A woman was part of those flogged

Men and women were writhing in agony before thousands of onlookers - as they were lashed with wooden canes for committing adultery and gambling.

Eleven Indonesians were whipped by Sharia police in Bandeh Aceh, the country's only province to practise Islam's Sharia law.

Horrific images show Sharia cops escorting the Indonesians onto a public stage, adorned with blood red carpet.

Those carrying out the beatings were completely covered in a green cloak, with masks and gloves.

The alleged convicts who received around 10 to 30 lashes each were dressed in all white, wearing no shoes.

Awaiting their fate, the Acehnese were initially forced to sit on the ground in front of a large crowd.

But once the painful beatings began, the convicts began to kneel on their hands, writhing in pain as they struggled to hold their ground.

One image captures a man appearing to surrender - as he holds his hands up in the air.

The shocking images are the latest to emerge from Indonesia, which have captured gruesome public beatings.

In July, frightening photographs showed Indonesian parents being whipped in front of their children.

The Acehnese appeared to be symbolically beaten in front of a Mosque in Pidie District, Aceh.

Sharia Law prohibits women from staying at entertainment venues past 11pm, unless they are accompanied by a male relative.

Drinking alcohol and homosexuality are all considered crimes which could result in punishable by public lashings.

According to reports, more than 90 per cent of Indonesians describe themselves as Muslims.

The province began to practise Sharia law in 2001, after it was granted special independence from the country's government.
