A Sri Lankan woman has been arrested on suspicion of casting a spell on a 13-year-old girl on a shopping trip in Saudi Arabia.She may face the death penalty as the Middle Eastern country is known to behead convicted sorcerers.
Police spokesman Mesfir al-Juayed confirmed yesterday that details of the woman's arrest published in local media were correct.
The daily Okaz reported that a Saudi man had complained his daughter had 'suddenly started acting in an abnormal way and that happened after she came close to the Sri Lankan woman' in a large shopping mall in the port city of Jeddah.
'He reported her to the security forces, asking for her arrest and the specialised units dealt with the situation swiftly and succeeded in arresting her,' Okaz said.She didn't cast a spell on the security forces? Why not? Was she feeling magnanimous?
