Saudi abattoir like giving Hitler gifts - Muslim leader

From Morning Report, 7:28 am on 28 January 2016

The Saudi Government executed 47 people this month, including some of its political opponents. The Saudi sheep deal is one of the factors cited as contributing to a fall in New Zealand's international reputation as a corruption-free country.
