Weird place, Saudi Arabia. In the Saudi city of Abha there’s a bit of consternation over the appearance one evening recently of a dead body, wrapped in a bloody shroud and shackled to a bed frame (sans mattress), on a busy road near the centre. Local police say the body – yet to be identified – was riddled with machine gun bullets.

Apparently the only mystery is how the Mabahith managed to get the bed onto the road without being spotted.
