Saudi Arabia plans to behead "witch"

Fawza Falih turned two men impotent, a court heard in the ultra-religious state where “performing supernatural occurrences” is considered an offence against Islam.

Judges were also told she cast a spell to bring about the return of a divorced man's ex-wife.

But international charity Human Rights Watch said King Abdullah's religious police had forced a confession out of her.

"And they claim the judges who tried her in the northern town of Quraiyat never gave her the opportunity to prove her innocence in the face of "absurd charges that have no basis in law."

The court also relied on the statements of witnesses who said she had "bewitched" them to convict her in April 2006, according to HRW.

Fawza later retracted her confession in court, claiming it was extracted under duress, and said that as an illiterate woman, she did not understand the document she was forced to fingerprint.

An appeals court ruled in September 2006 that Fawza could not be sentenced to death for witchcraft as a crime against God, because she had retracted her confession.

After that, the lower court judges re-sentenced her to death on the court's "discretionary" basis, for the benefit of "public interest" and to "protect the creed, souls and property of this country.""

    **You christians have been doing that on mass scales for centuries.**

    Moron.... you need to get out of the 6th century. What is going on in the Maldives, Saudi Arabia and many other countries goes against everything that Islam stood for back in the early days. What the fanatics are now doing goes beyond any evil ever known in modern history. This is not Islam, this is no religion, this is just like Scientology, a cult, THE largest cult in the history of mankind!
