A Saudi prince, Turki bin Saud al-Kabir has been executed for murder.
Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabir was put to death for the murder of a man, Adel bin Suleiman al-Muhaimeed, during a brawl in Riyadh three years ago.
He was convicted by a General court but the manner of his execution was not disclosed.
The family of Adel bin Suleiman al-Muhaimeed reportedly refused financial incentive from the Prince in order for them not to demand the death sentence. It is the first time in decades that a member of the Royal Family will be put to death.
