Christian Persecution Update

Fifty-three people have been executed in the Saudi Arabia since the beginning of the year. This puts Saudi Arabia on track to execute over 210 people in 2019. Possibly a ‘record’ under the Beast. Who else do we know, that will be ‘beheaded by the beast with an image that speaks’?

Saudi Arabia’s interior ministry said four people were executed Monday for drug trafficking, including one woman, bringing to 53 the number of people put to death this year.

Two Pakistani men, a Yemeni man and a Nigerian woman were executed in the holy city of Mecca, the ministry said in statements carried by the official Saudi Press Agency.

Fifty-three people have been executed in the kingdom since the beginning of the year, according to a count based on official data released by SPA.

The ultra-conservative kingdom has one of the world’s highest execution rates, with those convicted of terrorism, homicide, rape, armed robbery and drug trafficking facing the death penalty.

Rights experts have repeatedly raised concerns about the fairness of trials in the kingdom, governed under a strict form of Islamic law. The government says the death penalty is a deterrent for further crime.

Last year, Saudi Arabia carried out the death sentences of 120 people.
