Making the Cut

In Saudi Arabia, it is the simple things in life that give joy..like an easy head-lopping.

A convicted Saudi murderer escaped death by seconds when he was forgiven by his victim’s father as he knelt down before the executioner’s sword, a Saudi newspaper has reported.

Okaz daily said 21-year-old Abdul-Karim al-Ghoraid, who killed a friend in a dispute five years ago, was moments away from being beheaded in a public square in Saudi Arabia’s northern town of Tabuk on Friday.

“I knelt and lowered my head, praying to God that he would forgive me and grant that my head be cut with the first blow of the sword,” Ghoraid told the newspaper’s Sunday edition.
