A tale of two cities

In which city was a man executed last week for the murder of a policeman in 1989, protesting his innocence after most of the witnesses changed their testimony? All appeals were rejected as far as the Supreme Court and back.In which city was a woman sentenced to 10 lashes for driving a car but with her sentence overturned by the King who has just decided that women can have the vote?

Makes you think.
