Two Saudi police officers were beheaded by the sword after being convicted of raping an expatriate woman.
Corporal Shaalan bin Nasser al-Qahtani and Lance Corporal Fahd bin Hassan al-Sebeyi were convicted of attacking an expatriate and raping his niece at a checkpoint they were manning in the capital.

They had stopped them late in the night, beat the man up and locked him in a police car and then raped the woman.

Their executions bring to 11 the number of beheadings announced by the Saudi authorities since the beginning of the year. A total of 102 people were executed last year.
