After a thorough trial consisting of 10 hearings spanning over 2 years, a Saudi court has reached the measured, judicious and – given the mounting evidence in the case – only reasonable course of action regarding a Lebanese man found guilty of practicing black magic: death.

The man has the right to appeal the sentence with in 33 days proving – if it needed to be proven – the efficacy and fairness of the Saudi judicial system. The key evidence appears to have been finding the man in a hotel room with – people with a nervous disposition may wish to look away now – herbs, talismans and “some papers with strange drawings and writings”. Well, case closed.

Enlightened folk, those Saudis.
