A London based newspaper however reported that the Saudi Religious Police Chief, Abdullah al-Mohsen, said the unidentified woman had tricked people into thinking she could cure illnesses and charged them $800 for her services.
Though she was arrested in 2009, the execution took place this week. It is unclear how she was executed, although Saudi Arabia is still known for using public beheadings as a means of execution.
According to reports from Amnesty International, though the method of execution seems barbaric, Saudi Arabia executes fewer people than several other countries... including the United States. In 2010 Saudi Arabia executed 26 people... while the United States executed 46.
