Blogger Flees Twitter Fatwa

A young Saudi blogger’s tweets about the Prophet Muhammad have inflamed Islamists, who are calling for his execution. In an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast, 23-year-old Hamza Kashgari explains that he didn’t expect an outcry. More than 30,000 tweets were posted within a day, accusing him of blasphemy and saying that he crossed the line. Kashgari fled to Southeast Asia today.
