Saudi cleric condemns two of the country's joPosted Apr 19 2008
Saudi cleric Sheikh Abdul-Rahaman al-Barrak has released a fatwa on March 14 against two of the country's journalists for writing “heretical articles” that defy the Sunni Muslim belief that members of other religions who do not accept Muhammad as God's messenger are unbelievers. The two articles were written by journalists Yousef Aba al-Khail and Abdullah bin Bejad in the daily Al-Riyadh. The Sheikh has demanded their deaths if they did not repent their statements. None of this news was covered in Saudi print media, according to CPJ.
