A British man has been killed after youths allegedly rammed a car into a group of friends who were cycling in Saudi Arabia.
Initially, it is understood that one of the cars clipped a cyclist causing him to fall off his bike. Then, however, one of the drivers is alleged to have turned around and deliberately ploughed his car into the cyclists.
In the past 15 years, there have been a number of terrorist attacks on British and other western nationals in Saudi Arabia by Muslim extremists. Several westerners have been killed and even more injured in a series of bombs and gun attacks.
Company sources say that the arrest of an individual in such circumstances would not necessarily mean that criminal charges will follow. "Under Sharia law the Muslim law the driver is arrested even if it is an accident," said one source. "Under Sharia law too, he may have to pay a certain amount [to the family of the victim] depending on whose fault it was."

I hate it when writers pad their stories with unneccessary words.
Can’t tell from the article excerpt whether the incident was motivated by hatred of westerners, or hatred of bicycle riders.
>> “Under Sharia law the Muslim law the driver is arrested even if it is an accident,” said one source.
Are we supposed to respond: “Then let’s apply Sharia law!”
I think Sharia laws says that infidels don’t count.
“Oops! Just squashed another infidel!”
If it happened here, and the driver was in an SUV, the SUV would have been blamed by the liberals.
Religion of peace and tolerance. Yeah, right.
.... give the barbarians technology and see how they use it?
Flippin mohammedans belong... trapped in the dark ages.
What the west needs to do is give them a fence.
Those Muzzies are just doing jihad according to the writings in the Koran and the oral commentaries of the Hadith. Any infidel who walks on the lands controlled by Allah is considered a type of descration. Jihad fixes that problem very easily.
Let this be a lesson to any normal person who is thinking of going to a country infested by savage jihadis.
Critical Mass should go over to SA en mass and do a protest ride around Mecca.
I used to know a misogynistic homosexual who loved the place.
That is because its full of myogynistic homosexuals. From what I have heard, men are almost as likely to get raped as women by sexually deranged Saudi Men....
I just don’t understand why Westerers go vacationing in Muslim countries. In the old days, it may have been OK. But certainly not now.
What does the Koran say about bicycles?
It’s a toss up.
but under sharia law, is a british national even a human being?
Probably safer to vacation in North Philly.
