If You Believe This...

Man dies of fright in Saudi vice police custody: report

RIYADH (AFP) - A Bangladeshi man died of fright after being arrested by Saudi Arabia's controversial religious police for washing a car instead of praying, a local newspaper reported on Sunday.

The unnamed man died last week in the holy city of Medina after being detained by members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, Al-Jazirah reported.

The Arabic daily said the man "convulsed in fear after he was arrested, leading to a drop in his blood pressure and causing his death."

...I have some ocean front property in Arizona I can sell to you cheap.

What is even more unbelievable is that the AFP (Associated French Press) reports this without even blinking.
