A teenage Muslim girl was stoned to death under ‘Sharia law’ after taking part in a beauty contest in Ukraine.
Katya Koren, 19, was found dead in a village in the Crimea region near her home. Friends said she liked wearing fashionable clothes and had come seventh in a beauty contest. Her battered body was buried in a forest and was found a week after she disappeared.
Police have opened a murder probe and are investigating claims that three Muslim youths killed her claiming her death was justified under Islam. One of the three - named as 16-year-old Bihal Gaziev - is under arrest and told police she had ‘violated the laws of Sharia’. Gaziev said he had no regrets about her death because she had violated the laws of Islam.

Dozens of injured devotees were rushed to hospital after the attack Umar said it was only when the police were trying to defuse his explosives and when he saw the care the doctors were giving him, that he started to realise he had been wrong.
“I am so grateful, because I have been saved from going to hell. I am in a lot of pain, but I know there are many people in hospital even more severely injured than me and I am so sorry for what I did and for what Ismail did.
“We did a very bad thing by killing children and old men and women. I now realise suicide bombing is un-Islamic. I hope people will forgive me.”
"Where I used to go to school, there were Taliban all around. One day one of them told me to go with him to become a suicide bomber, but I told him if he wanted to kill people he should do it himself, not ask children. But he kept coming back.
"He said there was no point studying. He told me that nothing was better than paradise, and that you could earn that by killing non-believers.
"The Taliban prayed all the time and read the Koran, so I thought they were good people. My heart told me to go and train with them."
