Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Interior on Monday said it executed a man for being involved in two shootings of security men in the Kingdom’s Eastern Province, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.
The ministry said it implemented the death sentence as a “punishment for one of the perpetrators in the Eastern region who participated in two shootings of security men with the intention of killing them,” in a statement carried by SPA.
The man was also charged for possessing and dealing arms and using them to shoot “with the intent of disturbing security,” the statement added.
The executed man had links with several people who are wanted for their terrorist activities.
Last month, Saudi Arabia executed a citizen in the Eastern Province for his links to a terrorist cell and killing security men, murdering a citizen, possessing and making a Molotov cocktail bomb, SPA reported.
The terrorist cell aimed to destabilize the country’s internal security, according to SPA.
