Sudan follows harsh Islamic Sharia law and has become known for sentencing this type of severe punishment.

Thirty Africa-based human rights groups signed a letter asking Sudanese officials to cancel the sentence for Intisar Sharif Abdallah and release her.

Abdallah was charged with adultery, which she initially pleaded not guilty to then confessed after being beaten by her brother.

She's being held in a prison in Sudan's capital of Khartoum with her 4-month-old baby.
