Having trouble buying it. These guys seemed pretty stupid and nuts, but they have Sharia law, and at least some sense of diligence about setting up courts and stuff. Not that I would expect to bank on their sense of justice, but cannibalism?

Burning people alive is not allowed under sharia either. Is it possible that this is propaganda? Yes. But based on what I have seen, I don't think it is in any way beyond the realm of possibility or even likelihood.
