Saudi Preacher Fayhan Al Ghamdi Released after Rape, Torture, and Murder of Five-Year-Old Daughter Lama

Saudi Preacher Fayhan Al Ghamdi Released after Rape, Torture, and Murder of Five-Year-Old Daughter Lama | Soup for thought | Scoop.it

Public anger has gripped Saudi Arabia after a prominent preacher who raped and beat to death his 5-year-old daughter was sentenced to a few months in jail and a $50,000 fine – known as 'blood money' – to compensate the victim's relatives.

malek's insight:

In December 2011, Lama was admitted to hospital with multiple injuries, including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, and extensive bruising and burns, according to the activist group. Hospital worker Randa Kaleeb said that the girl's back was broken, and that she had been raped "everywhere." 

The hospital told the victim's mother that her child's “rectum had been torn open and the abuser had attempted to burn it closed,” AFP reported on Saturday.
