A man was beheaded Saturday for raping another man, the Saudi Interior Ministry said in a statement quoted by AP.
Hamad bin Saleh bin Abdul Aziz Al Fadl was convicted of getting drunk, kidnapping a man and raping him, the statement added. He was beheaded in the northeastern province of Al Qatif.
The beheading raised to 21 the number of people executed this year in Saudi Arabia.
In 2002, some 80 persons were beheaded in the Saudi kingdom. (Albawaba.com)
