Saudi Arabia's Interior Ministry said that authorities beheaded an Egyptian man convicted of murdering a Saudi citizen. According to the statement issued by the ministry Monday, Ahmed Moustafa beat Fahd al-Mutari to death in a personal feud. The ministry said that Moustafa was beheaded in Riyadh. Saudi Arabia follows a strict interpretation of Islam under which people convicted of murder, drug trafficking, rape and armed robbery can be executed - usually with a sword.
