Saudis plan to file suit over british TV movie

The general secretariat of the Islamic Press will file suit against an independent British TV company over the film "Death of a Princes," charging it with malicious attacks against Islam and Saudi Arabia. The Arab News newspaper Tuesday quoted a secretariat official, Sheikh Ali Hafiz, as saying that no date had been set for filing the suit. The film, shown on Britain's Independent Television Network last week, attempted to reconstruct the case of Princess Misha, executed by firing squad for adultery in 1977. The film has been denounced by Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries as an attack on Islamic religion.
