Saudi Arabia Beheads Woman Convicted Of Sexually Molesting, Murdering Stepdaughter; Indonesia Executes 6 Drug Smugglers

Members of Magic Movement, a group of young Bangladeshis, stage a mock execution scene in protest of Saudi Arabia beheading of eight Bangladeshi workers in front of National Museum in Dhaka October 15, 2011.

It’s not just the Islamic State whose beheading knife is sharp and used often. Saudi Arabia’s decapitation knife was put to use on Friday when it beheaded a Burmese woman convicted for sexual abuse and murder of her 7-year-old stepdaughter.

Tribune identified the woman as Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, who was a resident of Saudi Arabia when she was executed.

According to human rights activist, Basim was beheaded without painkillers “to make the pain more powerful for her.”

To complete the death sentence, the executioner made three chops on her neck, while Basim was shouting, “I did not kill!” The beheading was posted on YouTube, but the video-sharing site removed it since it disallows clips with shocking and disgusting content…

Indonesia sparks worldwide condemnation over execution of five foreigners for drug smuggling despite appeals: The Indonesian government’s decision to execute six people, including five foreigners, despite international appeals has caused a diplomatic crisis, with Brazil and the Netherlands recalling their ambassadors.

Despite protestations from the Dutch King and Prime Minister, as well as the Brazilian President, Indonesia had four men from Brazil, Malawi, Nigeria and the Netherlands executed by firing squad for drug trafficking.

    I have no problem with executing people for drug smuggling; those other countries should have shut up when one of their citizens engaged in a crime and was punished for it.

      Zeig Heil. Who else do you think should get executed?

    And normally the Saudis behead a person in a wide open public space that can accommodate a crowd.

    The woman in the news story had her head lopped off in the road in front of a few dozen people, like it was a matter of convenience.

    Would seem to be more efficient than the problems always seen with ‘humane’ lethal injection.
