The reported sentencing of paralysis for a Saudi man as punishment for paralysing another man has been described as "outrageous" by a leading human rights group.
Saudi reports say the 24-year-old man could be paralysed from the waist down if he cannot pay his victim one million riyals (£250,000) in compensation.
Amnesty International says the sentence is a form of torture.
The man has been in prison for 10 years since he stabbed a friend in the back.
