Cleric's execution a tipping point?

Published 06/01/2016

Sometimes there is a tipping-point, where one event can cause a world meltdown.

The latest tipping-point could be the execution by Saudi Arabia of Shi'ite Muslim cleric Nimr al-Nimr.

I hope his execution does not start another World War - like the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria did in 1914.
