Lebanese "sorcerer" may not be executed

'A Lebanese man sentenced to die for "sorcery" in Saudi Arabia remains on death row but may not be executed - at least not yet, the man's lawyer said.
May El Khansa said that Lebanon's justice minister met with Saudi Arabia's ambassador to Lebanon this week in an effort to spare the life of her client, Ali Hussain Sibat.

The Saudi ambassador told Lebanon's justice minister, Ibrahim Najjar, that Sibat wouldn't be beheaded because a final verdict had not been reached, El Khansa said, citing an account of the conversation that she received from the Lebanese justice minister.'
