A judge in Saudi Arabia has offered a prisoner the chance
A judge in Saudi Arabia has offered a prisoner the chance to gain an early release by digging graves, national media said on Wednesday.

The Okaz newspaper said a prisoner who had been sentenced to eight months in jail and 400 lashes for shooting at his uncle, without hitting him, had been offered the chance to dig graves at a local public cemetery.

The judge said the prisoner's sentence would be reduced by a month for every 10 graves he was able to dig. The newspaper quoted the judge as saying it would give the man, and prisoners in general, "a chance to think about the value of life."

The prisoner has however rejected the judge's offer and filed an appeal with the court.
