Mohamed Kohail's Death Sentence Reaffirmed

Mohamed Kohail has again been ordered to be publicly beheaded for his part in a Saudi schoolyard brawl in 2007 that left one young man dead.

Convicted and condemned in March, 2008, by a lower court, it looked as though Kahail would be spared following the February ruling of the Supreme Judicial Council, Saudi Arabia's highest court, which ordered the lower court to reconsider its decision.

The lower court reconsidered but decided to reaffirm its judgment and order Kohail beheaded.
