Wasn't there a similar case in Iran where some bloke who blinded a girl with acid was to have his sight taken?

found the article.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011...-criminal-acid

Majid Movahedi, 30, is scheduled to be rendered unconscious in Tehran's judiciary hospital at noon on Saturday while Ameneh Bahrami, his victim, drops acid in both his eyes

Don't think she went ahead with it in the end

As barbaric, uncivilised and horrible as Saudi is I think this is maybe a step too far for them. Has it happened before or is it seen as a warning?

I would imagine Taliban or nutters in the Maghreb do this quite often in their f**ked up backwaters. Just as Tehran and Riyadh are modern metropolises makes it newsworthy

Riyadh and Tehran might superficially appear to be verging on the mid to late 20th century, but theocratically they are still 500 years behind the rest of the world. After all, the only useful thing to come from Arabic is the word 'Alcohol'. Unfortunately that brought with it an element of fun, so the pious and hypocritical ones banned it. If it wasn't for the fact that they regard the Rolling Stones as degenerates, I am sure that both Saudi Arabia and Iran would have adopted 'Paint It Black' as their national anthems!
