This one still blows my mind. A woman in Saudi Arabia was accused of being a witch and found guilty and sentenced to death. At one point an appeals court decided she shouldn't be sentenced to death, but that was changed. Human Rights Watch is appealing for her. She's illiterate and was originally detained by the religious police in Saudi Arabia. This is one of those stories that you hear about and just can't quite believe it's happening in the 21st century. Hopefully the king will do something.
