Hamdulillah :) December 17, 2007

Posted by Aella in Culture, Saudi Arabia, Saudi culture.

Just read in the Swedish paper “Dagens Nyheter” that the king of Saudi Arabia has pardoned the girl from Qatif (I am guessing most people have heard of the controversial and sick rape case by now).

In Swedish http://www.dn.se/DNet/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=148&a=725567

In English http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7147632.stm

I don’t really care that that King Abdullah think the sentence was right….hamdulillah that she has been pardoned.

Arab Lady, You are absolutely right…read your blog and found it interesting but couldn’t manage to post a comment. Take care and don’t rush into things…you are still so young..
