Let's Give a Hand for Islamic Justice

The enlightened protectors of the holy cities have handed out justice against two pickpockets. I guess "handed out" is a poor choice of words since the justice involved involuntary amputation.

Interestingly, the Arab News reports this procedure as a "wrist amputation.” Does that mean they got their hands back but without the wrist?

Isn't that a bit like calling beheading a "neck amputation?"
