death by crucifixion

"A Saudi public prosecutor is pushing for the death sentence in the case of a detained Shia cleric from Qatif, local media reported Tuesday. The prosecutor is seeking to apply the punishment of heraba, death by crucifixion, against Sheikh Nemer al-Nemer, a firebrand preacher who was arrested in July 2012 after a car chase in the town of Awwamiya in the Eastern Province."
