    Saudi prince executed for murdering a compatriot

    Saudi prince executed for murdering a compatriot



    It is unusual for members of the Saudi Arabian royal family to be executed

    A Saudi Arabian prince has been executed for shooting dead a man during a brawl three years ago in the capital Riyadh, the interior ministry has said.

    Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabir was put to death in the capital. No details were given as to how he was executed – most condemned people are beheaded.

    The prince is the 134th person to be put to death this year, according to a list compiled by the AFP news agency.

    But it is rare for royal family members to be executed, correspondents say.

    The prince had pleaded guilty to shooting his compatriot, the interior ministry statement said.

    Announcing the execution, the ministry said it would assure everyone the government was “keen to preserve security and achieve justice”.

    The victim’s family refused offers of “blood money” by which they would receive financial compensation in return for not demandinga the death sentence, Al-Arabiya reported.

    One of the most well-known cases of a Saudi royal being executed was that of Faisal bin Musaid al Saud, who assassinated his uncle, King Faisal, in 1975

    The Saudis rely on tribal support. He obviously killed someone from the wrong tribe.

    An eye for an eye is not just a biblical theme.

    There's another one in jail in the UK for killing his boyfriend. They could have used diplomatic immunity to get him home, but then they would have had to execute him.
