Eight devil worshipers arrested in Lebanon for blasphemy

From Naharnet:
Eight people, including several girls, were arrested on Friday on suspicion of blasphemy and drug possession in Mount Lebanon.

The National News Agency said the suspects are devil worshippers and are self-harming.

Military Examining Magistrate Saqr Saqr is expected to charge the eight on Saturday, NNA said.

Lebanese law prohibits blasphemy and immoral conduct.
I believe the penalty in Lebanon for blasphemy is a few years in jail. In Saudi Arabia, it's death. (h/t Dan)
