Saudi Arabia set to execute political prisoner by crucifiction

Yes, you read that right!

‘A prisoner in Saudi Arabia, who was sentenced to death as a child, faces “death by crucifixion” after a final appeal has been dismissed. Ali Mohammed al-Nimr was arrested on 14 February 2012 when he was just 17, during a crackdown on anti-government protests in the Shiite province of Qatif. He was accused by the authorities of participation in illegal protests and of firearms offences, despite there being no evidence to justify the latter charge.’

I’m just hoping this is an Onion-esque type of a hoax.

Oh, and here is the picture that was published with the article:
