News roundup

Wife-beating Saudi Mohammed al-Fallatta has given himself up. In the BBC report the corporation's Saudi correspondent notes:

"The BBC's correspondent Kim Ghattas says Saudi Arabia is a deeply conservative society, where Islamic Sharia law is strictly enforced and where honour and appearances are hugely important.

The presence of problems such as domestic violence, rape, paedophilia or Aids is often simply not acknowledged."
Undoubtedly LGF Charles will find another reason to brand the BBC apologists for 'islamo-fascism'.

Meanwhile, some good news: Mordechai Vanunu has been released after 18 years in prison for leaking Israel's nuclear secretcs. And he's vowed to fight on.
