Saudis delay sorcerer's execution

A Lebanese TV host who predicts the future on his show had been facing execution in Saudi Arabia, where he'd traveled for a religious pilgrimage. His career is enough to qualify for the crime of "sorcery," according to the Saudi religious police. (Call Dick Wolf, I just had an idea for another "Law & Order" show.) The Lebanese government is working to save the guy's life. It's not clear how long the reprieve will last.

Hat Tip: Many thanks, Goshel!
