Woman Sentenced to Death for Killing 57 in Fire; Was "Payback" to Husband for Getting 2nd Wife

The Agence France Presse (AFP) website reports that Kuwait's supreme court yesterday (June 12, 2011) upheld a woman's death sentence for setting ablaze her husband's wedding tent, killing 57 women and children.

Nasra Yussef Mohammed al-Enezi, 24, was condemned to death for revenge against her husband for taking a second wife.

Under Islamic laws, men in Kuwait can take up to four wives at a time.

Death sentences in the oil-rich Gulf state are carried out by hanging.
