A Saudi man was shown in a YouTube film using a stick to savagely lash a number of children one after another at a home in the Gulf Kingdom.
The film, published by several Saudi newspapers, showed the unidentified man, wearing an Arabian dishdasha, picked one child after another to mercilessly lash them on their back despite their screams of pain.
The papers said the man punished the children for bad behavior but it was not clear where in Saudi Arabia the film was shot or whether the man is related to the children.
“Most of those who saw the film called on the police to find this man and severely punish him,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Sabq said.
