Saudi beheads Sudanese for murder -

AFP - Saudi Arabia on Friday beheaded a Sudanese man convicted of murdering a compatriot in the capital Riyadh, the interior ministry announced.

Sadiq Abdel Mullah was sentenced to death for the fatal stabbing of Ahmed Mohammed, it said, quoted by the state-run news agency SPA.

His beheading raised to 22 the number of people executed in Saudi Arabia this year, according to an AFP count.

In 2010, 27 executions were reported in the oil-rich kingdom, down from 67 in 2009 and 102 in 2008.
Rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking are all punishable by death under the conservative Muslim kingdom's strict interpretation of Islamic sharia law.
