Saudi Arabia executes ISIS member who killed his cousin

Published: Updated:

The Saudi interior ministry announced on Tuesday the execution of an ISIS militant who killed his cousin.

Majed Saad bin Radhi al-Anzi, a Saudi national, was handed the death sentence following a trial which found him guilty of committing terrorist acts, including luring his own cousin to a desert area and killing him in the rehion of Hail.

In a statement, the ministry stressed on the need to root out those who violate the safety and security of the kingdom.

The crime shook the kingdom as it was videotaped, and the man’s cousin is seen begging for him not to kill him, repeatedly screaming “enough Saad”.

He had also committed two other crimes; the first was killing two citizens at the Amair bin Sanaa police station, and the second was shooting a sergeant, Abdulelah al-Rashidi in the al-Shamli province traffic department.
