Saudi murders daughter. Saudi news blames Facebook.

I don't know why I'm coming across so much Saudi news lately, but....
A woman was beaten up and shot dead by her father for talking online with a man she met on the website Facebook.

The case was reported on a Saudi Arabian news site as an example of the "strife" the social networking site is causing in the Islamic nation.

A leading Saudi preacher told Al-Arabiya.net that Facebook was a "door to lust" for women and called for it to be blocked.

Sheikh Ali al-Maliki said women were posting "revealing pictures" and "behaving badly" on the site, which has become popular with young Saudis.

See what happens when you allow kids to run loose on the Internet? Their virtuous fathers are forced to kill them!
