"Sorcerer" Faces Imminent Death in Saudi Arabia

Wow, remind me never to travel to Saudi Arabia:

"Sorcerer" Faces Imminent Death in Saudi Arabia

Ali Sabat was the host of a popular Lebanese TV show in which he predicted the future and gave advice. He was arrested by religious police on sorcery charges while on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in 2008. His lawyer, May el-Khansa, says she has been told Mr Sabat is due to be executed this week ... Many Saudi executions are beheadings by the sword in public places.
