Saudi Arabia diplayes bodies of Ethiopians beheaded for armed robbery

Saudi authorities on Wednesday beheaded two Ethiopians convicted of killing a Saudi national in an armed robbery and displayed their bodies in public after the execution, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

 

The statement, carried by the official Saudi Press Agency, said Ali Mohammed Ali and Adel Adam Aman were found guilty of fatally shooting and robbing Khaled bin Karim bin Bakhash. A court ordered their bodies be displayed in a public place after the execution as a further deterrent ''because of the hideousness nature of the crime.''  (AP)
