A Saudi Woman, Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar, was executed by way of beheading “in the northern Saudi province of al-Jawf on Monday.” The Saudi Interior Ministry has revealed that she was accused and convicted of practicing "witchcraft and sorcery.” 
 
Philip Luther of Amnesty International's Middle East and North Africa program condemned the action in the following statement
 
The charges of 'witchcraft and sorcery' are not defined as crimes in Saudi Arabia and to use them to subject someone to the cruel and extreme penalty of execution is truly appalling.
According to ABC News, Luther also claims that a “charge of sorcery is often used by the Saudi government as a smokescreen under which they punish people for exercising freedom of speech.”

The complete lack of any details makes me wonder if this isn't pure propaganda.

"She turned me into a newt."

"She's a witch; a witch."

"Well, I got better!"
