Saudi Arabian prince executed after pleading guilty to murder

Prince Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabir  was put to death on Tuesday 18 October 2016 after a court found him guilty of killing one Adel al-Mohaimeed following a disagreement.

The execution was carried out in Riyadh and it’s not the first time a member of the royal family is being condemned to death. In 1975, the assassin behind the killing of King Faisal, Faisal bin Musaid al Saud, was executed in a similar way.
