Pokemon Go DEATH WATCH: Pokemon Subject To Fatwa In Saudi Arabia

 
Pokemon subject to fatwa in Saudi Arabia
 
Three Saudi men have been arrested while playing Pokemon Go at an airport in the kingdom, the Saudi online newspaper Almowaten reports. The three, in their mid-20s, were referred to investigations for using their smartphone cameras to illegally take pictures in the restricted area of the King Abdullah airport in south-western Saudi Arabia, the paper said. It was not clear when the incident occurred or what penalty could apply to them. The Council of Senior Scholars, the kingdom's highest religious body, this week renewed a 2001 fatwa, or religious edict, that considers the Pokemon game a form of gambling, which is forbidden in Islam. Sheikh Saleh al-Fozan, a member of the council, said that the current form of the game falls under the same fatwa banning the card version, Saudi newspaper Arab News reported. The game is not officially available in Saudi Arabia, but many in the oil-rich country are believed to have downloaded the app, according to media reports. Source

Lebanon: Muslims Set Fire To Refugee Camp

A fire tore through a camp for Syrian refugees in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley on Sunday, killing at least one person and leaving two in critical condition, the U.N. refugees' organization said. Flames and thick clouds of black smoke rose from the site near the town of Qab Elias, around a hour's drive east of Beirut, in footage broadcast by Lebanon's MTV, and at least one explosion was seen. Reuters TV footage showed the blaze had virtually razed the camp as a fire truck doused down the still-smoldering ground. A Syrian refugee said many of the people living at the camp had come to Lebanon from the Raqqa area of Syria. UNHCR spokeswoman Dana Sleiman said the camp had been home to 102 families. "We've started the assessment as to how many tents have been damaged. As soon as the assessment is done, we will provide the families with all the help they need," she said. "Apparently it started with a cooking stove. We are waiting to confirm that." Sleim…

A man accused of pouring gasoline on his fiancee and lighting her on fire says it was a 'horrible accident,' because he is in 'love with her.'
