Saudi authorities beheaded Saturday a Saudi man convicted of slaying a Yemeni boy whom he had tried to molest, the official Saudi Press Agency reported. Ibnalzen al-Aseri was found guilty of luring the boy, Ali Bin Mohammed Hasani, into drinking alcohol, according to an Interior Ministry statement carried by SPA. After the boy refused to have sex with the man, al-Azeri fatally stabbed Hasani and disposed of the body in a deserted area. SPA said al-Aseri had been on the run but was recently arrested. He was executed in the southern city of Asir.
