A Saudi Prince was executed yesterday after he was found guilty of murdering a compatriot, media reports said on Wednesday.
However, it was not clear how the execution took place. Reports said it’s rare for royal family members to be executed.
Prince Turki Bin Saud Bin Turki Bin Saud Al Kabir was executed in the national capital after he was found guilty of murdering a man three years ago.
“Turki Bin Saud Bin Turki Bin Saud Al Kabir, a Saudi national, had shot Adel Bin Sulaiman Bin Abdul Kareem Al Muhaimeed, also a Saudi national, following a group dispute,” the Interior Ministry was quoted as saying in Dubai-based Gulf News.
He is the 134th person executed this year.
The victim’s family refused offers of ‘blood money’ and demanded justice be carried out, Al Arabiya reported.
