[world politics news]

A new Sharia-based law in the sultanate of Brunei allows for the stoning to death of homosexuals and the amputation of limbs for thieves.

The small oil-rich Asian nation begin implementing Islamic Sharia law in 2014 and homosexuality is already punishable by 10 years in prison. But human rights groups warn that this new round of laws are "vicious" in nature.

The nation's 73-year-old leader, Hassanal Bolkaih, banned the public celebration of Christmas in 2015.
