Public Execution of Saudi Prince ‘Turki bin Saud al-Kabir’ by Beheading

For the first time in 40 years, Saudi Arabia executed a member of the royal family. Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabir was publicly beheaded by sword for murdering Abdul Karim Mohaimeed during a brawl at a desert camp in December 2012.

The Saudi royal family consists of about 6,000 people. The al-Kabir (sometimes spelled al-Kabeer) branch of the family is not in line to throne, but holds a prominent position within the royal family.

The previous royal executed in Saudi Arabia was Prince Faisal bin Musaid, who was beheaded in Riyadh for assassinating his uncle – King Faisal.
