The state-run Anatolia news agency says a Turkish man sentenced to public beheading in Saudi Arabia for insulting Islam, but pardoned by the king, has returned home. Anatolia says a large crowd welcomed 30-year-old barber Sabri Bogdan back to his hometown of Hatay, in southern Turkey, yesterday. King Abdullah pardoned Bogdan following requests from the Turkish president and prime minister. He had been imprisoned for the past two years after being convicted of cursing Allah during a fight.
