Saudi prince executed for killing man brawl

Saudi Arabia has executed one of its own young princes for the first time in 40 years, sending what analysts described as a “strong message” to younger royals that they are not above the law.

Prince Turki bin Saud bin Turki bin Saud al-Kabeer was beheaded on Tuesday afternoon for murder after he shot another young man during a brawl at a desert camp in 2012.  His death sentence was confirmed by a royal decree issued by King Salman himself, who is a distant cousin of the executed man.

While criminal acts committed by Saudi royals are sometimes censored, the execution of Prince Turki was widely reported through the state media.
