Human Rights Groups Urge Saudi Arabia To Stop The Beheading Of Fourteen Teenage Protesters

Several Human rights groups, including Amnesty International, have asked The Saudi Kingdom to halt executions of 14 boys, reporting that at least 66 have been beheaded so far this year.

On Monday, the rights group called out Saudi Arabian supreme court’s decision to uphold death sentences against the group convicted of crimes related to their involvement in protests.

Amnesty International also said it learned on Sunday that the Specialised Criminal Court (SCC) in Riyadh upheld the death sentences for 15 other men accused of spying for Iran.

Court documents showed that the men claimed they had been tortured until they confessed to the allegations.

Amnesty added that Saudi authorities had executed at least 26 people over the past three and a half weeks – an average of more than one execution a day.

On Wednesday, the UK-based rights group Reprieve had obtained more than 32,000 signatures on a petition to cancel the executions.

Earlier this month, Saudi Arabia upheld a death sentence for 23-year-old Munir Adam, a partially deaf and blind man who was allegedly tortured into a confession.

Sure, if you can invent a battery that lasts 20 years, recharges from empty to full capacity in less than 5 minutes, stores 10 times more energy per pound than lithium ion batteries, and costs less than $5000 per automobile.

Please get to it!

Pathetic...Trump loves strong men countries. He would do fine as a dictator and I'm sure his supporters would love that. Go to another country...
