#SaudiArabia / #Terrorism / #HumanRights

On January 2, 2016, Saudi Arabia carried out a mass execution of 47 men for “terrorism offenses.” 43 were associated with Al-Qaeda attacks in the 2000s, and four were Shia allegedly involved in protest-related “crimes” in 2011 and 2012. It was Saudi Arabia’s largest mass execution since 1980. Basically they crackdown on peaceful protestors and decided they were “terrorists” for daring to say NO to the Saudi “fair and just” ruling and therefore killed them. Among those executed were Ali Saeed Al Ribh, whose trial judgment indicates that he was under 18 when he allegedly committed some of the crimes for which he was sentenced to death, and Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr, a prominent Shia cleric sentenced to death in 2014 after a Saudi court convicted him on a host of ambiguous charges, apparently based largely on his peaceful criticism of Saudi officials.
