Saudi Arabia: Abused Indonesian maid kills employer in self-defense – gets beheaded

(VIDEO) Furore over Indonesian’s beheading in Saudi — Indonesia has recalled its ambassador to Saudi Arabia in response to the execution of an Indonesian maid after being convicted of murdering her Saudi employer.

The incident has sparked protests in Jakarta and calls for an explanation from Riyadh.

In the past 20 years, a total of 303 migrant workers from Indonesia have been sentenced to death in Saudi Arabia and Indonesia has managed to help only 12 of its citizens escape execution.
