Saudi promises a review of Qatif rape case

Prince Saud al-Faisal has promised to have a review of the case of a girl who has been sentenced to 200 lashes because she was raped.

In a typical Islamic fashion the Saudi authorities claim that they are receiving unfair criticism over the case. Al-Faisal is more concerned about the press coverage than about the punishment given to the girl, and then the attempt to claim that she was an adulteress.
