Bahraini MPs want Islamic law to curb crime

Another claimed that thieves should have their hands chopped off because "God ordered us to do so". Another one described the punishment as unfair if adulterers are not stoned. The comments were made in parliament yesterday as MPs discussed amendments to the country's Penal Code.
