Saudi religious police saves family from 'spell'

Saudi Arabia’s religious police stopped an Indonesian housemaid just before returning to her home country after her employer told them he suspected she would cast a magic spell on his family.

When they opened her luggage, members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice found a small bag containing bread, spice, hair and underwear belonging to her employer’s family members.

“Experts at the Commission’s anti-sorcery section told the man that there was no magic spell but that the maid wanted to cast a spell,” Almadina newspaper said. “The man was assured that he and his family were saved from magic.”
