Saudi Arabia is expected to literally crucify a man for crimes committed when he was a teenager. Ali Mohammed al-Nimr was arrested for anti-government protests in 2012, when he was 17 years old. He was also charged with firearms crimes, but his supporters say the government coerced a confession. Al-Nimr is the nephew of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, a Shiite cleric critical of the regime who has also been sentenced to death by crucifixion. Sheikh al-Nimr is expected to be executed Thursday, raising fears that Ali al-Nimr—whose last appeal was held in secret and denied—will be executed alongside him.
