Three Indonesian men convicted of playing dominoes for money escaped before a public caning in devoutly Muslim Aceh province.
Local Islamic police chief Muhammad Rusli said they bolted during an unguarded bathroom visit minutes before the punishment for violating anti-gambling laws.
The fugitives were caught playing dominoes for 1,000 rupiah (10 US cents) per game.
They were to receive six strokes of the cane each outside a mosque.

Looks like the religion of peace in Aceh Province, Indonesia, forbids gambling with dominoes.
How strict is that?
How is it differn’t then all the insane anti-gambling laws in the US?
Would you like to tell us all in which U.S. jurisdiction the punishment for gambling is caning?
Its no wonder that the people of Islam prefer death to life. What a dreary non life affirming philosophy...
Should have tried 42!
Texans should know what I am talking about!
