Saudi authorities beheaded three Bangladeshi men Friday who were convicted of killing a fellow national and raping his wife, the Interior Ministry said. In a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency, the ministry said that Thakeer Abdul-Rahman, Tafeel Abdul-Rasheed and Leon Juli stormed the home of the fellow national, whose name was not given. "They beat him up, threatened him with a knife, blindfolded him and used a rope to strangle him," according to the statement. It said the three men stole the couple's money and gold jewelry before taking the wife to a remote place and raping her.
