Australian Sentenced to 500 Lashes in Saudi Arabia

An Australian man has been sentenced to 500 lashes and a year in a Saudi Arabian jail after being convicted of blasphemy, officials said Wednesday.

Mr Almaribe arrived in Australia in 1999 from Iraq as a refugee and brought his family over 2006.

Mr Almaribe is a Shi'ite. Saudi Arabia is 95 per cent Sunni Muslim.

His wife Waffa collapsed in tears when she heard he would be lashed 500 times and serve a year in jail.
