Killed for Facebook?

A young Saudi woman was beaten and then shot by her father as punishment for looking at Facebook, the Daily Telegraph reports.

“Facebook is a door to lust and young women and men are spending more on their mobile phones and the Internet than they are spending on food,” says Ali al-Maliki, the Saudi cleric who is leading the charge against social networking websites.
