The Saudi Arabia Kingdom News Agency announced on Tuesday that it has executed 37 men convicted of terror-related crimes. Reports also state that one of the criminals was crucified.
The Saudi Press Agency SPA said in a tweet: “The death penalty was implemented on a number of criminals for adopting extremist terrorist ideologies and forming terrorist cells to corrupt and disrupt security as well as spreading chaos and provoking sectarian strife.” The body of one of the men, Khaled bin Abdel Karim al-Tuwaijri was publicly pinned to a pole for several hours in a process that is not frequently used by the kingdom. These executions were carried out in accordance with the Islamic laws of the land.
So far, Saudi Arabia has one of the most brutal death penalty punishments in the world.
