An article recently shared on facebook,
Rape victim sentenced 200 lashes by Saudi court
,
usually with this image -



resurrects a 6 year old case as new...
However, the Clarion piece is from 2007.
and includes the update...


The exposure of this case prompted comment from President Bush and led to a pardon from the Saudi King.

The image that accompanies the facebook-shared article is used in a 2010 article about *Iranian* persecution of LGBT citizens.
