|The Saudis are beheading wizards.|
Lisa Simpson: Because it doesn't make any sense at all! If you believe in angels why not unicorns or elves, or leprechauns?
Kent Brockman: Oh that's ridiculous Lisa, everyone knows leprechauns are extinct!
There is no doubt. Human beings are fucking morons.
A Saudi man has been beheaded on charges of sorcery and witchcraft, the state news agency SPA says.
The man, Muree bin Ali bin Issa al-Asiri, was found in possession of books and talismans, SPA said. He had also admitted adultery with two women, it said.
The execution took place in the southern Najran province, SPA reported.
Human rights groups have repeatedly condemned executions for witchcraft in Saudi Arabia.
Last year, there were reports of at least two people being executed for sorcery.
Asiri was beheaded after his sentence was upheld by the country's highest courts, the Saudi news agency website said.
No details were given of what he was found guilty of beyond the charges of witchcraft and sorcery.
More recent cases of death on charges of sorcery include that of a Saudi woman, executed for committing sorcery and witchcraft in December, in the northern province of Jawf, and that of a Sudanese man executed in September, despite calls led by Amnesty International for his release. (BBC News)
