Punishment for zina in a non-Muslim country

Q: Is the law for zina (adultery) the same for a divorcee or widower? Suppose a man was married and now he is single after having divorced his wife or she died, will he be killed if he commits zina? 

A: These laws are applicable in an Islamic state.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
