TWO MEN EXECUTED FOR CHILD ASSAULT
According to state-run Saudi television, two men were convicted and executed for abducting a boy and committing obscene acts with him. Saudi Arabia applies strict Islamic sharia law by publicly beheading convicted murders, rapists, drug smugglers and other criminals. There have been eleven executions in the kingdom so far this year. Approximately 125 people were executed last year, mostly for murder or drug smuggling.
