Saudi Arabia Beheading Of Criminals..

A Saudi man convicted of shooting another Saudi national during a dispute was beheaded on Tuesday in the southern city of Najran, the Interior Ministry said.

Yahia bin Ali al-Kastaban was found guilty of murdering Saleh bin Mohammed al-Bakri by shooting him with a gun after a dispute, the Interior Ministry said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.

Saudi Arabia follows a strict interpretation of Islam under which those convicted of murder, drug trafficking, rape and armed robbery are executed in public with a sword.

Tuesday's execution brought to 91 the number of people beheaded in the kingdom this year. Saudi Arabia beheaded 38 people last year and 83 people in 2005.
