And I'll be in Scotland afore ye

Just pulling out of King's Cross on my way to Glasgow for Monday morning meetings. Long journey via Edinburgh as the West Coast line is shut at Carlilse due to a washed out bridge. Adds an hour to the journey!

At the time, it was a law that Shias could only progress to certain levels in government positions and no further.

Nimr al-Nimr execution: Former Iraq PM al-Maliki says death will 'topple Saudi regime'

The former prime minister of Iraq, Nuri al-Maliki, has said that the execution of the prominent Shi'ite cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr by Saudi Arabia will be the downfall of the Gulf kingdom's government.
Hundreds of armoured vehicles were sent to Qatif in Saudi Arabia to contain protests in response to the execution, while demonstrators in Bahrain have been tear-gassed.
