CNN reports that a Lebanese TV presenter convicted of sorcery in Saudi Arabia will be beheaded on Friday.
Ali Hussain Sibat was convicted by a Saudi religious court while visiting that country in November for a religious pilgrimage. He hosted a television show broadcast from Beirut in which he predicted the future and gave advice to his audience.
His lawyer appealed the death sentence, but the appeals court sent it back to the trial court, which upheld its earlier decision, CNN reported.
