Saudi Arabian Justice
A woman who was gang-raped over a year ago in the Saudi capital of Riyadh was sentenced to six months in jail and 200 lashes. Her crime: Being in the car of a man who was not a relative.
The seven men convicted of raping the 19-year-old were not beheaded, but rather sentenced to between two and nine years in prison. Three of the convicts were also convicted of raping her male companion.
The Saudi Arabian flag features a sword underneath the Arabic inscription, "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is his Messenger."
