Saudis call this justice

A Pakistani man and woman convicted of drug smuggling were beheaded with a sword on Wednesday in the Saudi Red Sea city of Jeddah click here and see how the Saudi news agency reported this. Even the way they write their news is cruel. Mohammed Rafiq Miyassid and his daughter Abajan Mohammed Rafiq were caught bringing heroin into Saudi Arabia in their stomachs (they were mules... shit). 34 people have been executed in Saudi Arabia this year, At least 83 in 2005 and 35 the year before. Executions are carried out in public and parents take their children to watch. Death penalty is applied for murder, rape, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking.

  • This reminds me of my fav. movie Elizabeth. It should be a crime if a parent let his children watch this.

    Another thing though what were those two thinking knowing that this might happen to them.

    Sad!
