Execution of Royal Family Member

Saudi Arabia has taken the steps of executing a royal family member after he was found guilty of murder. Prince Turki bin Saud bin Turki bin Saud Al-Kabeer was convicted in a shooting case that led to the death of a Saudi national.

The following conviction of the prince led to a very fast and swift execution earlier this week on Tuesday. The method of execution was not given out to the public, but most executions in Saudi end in beheading.

The prince pled not guilty and many of his supporters in the Saudi Courts tried to prevent his execution, but the royal family ultimately overruled these objectors and ordered a direct execution of Prince Al-Kabeer by means of beheading. This is the first execution of a member of the Saudi royal house in 40 years.
