Saudi authorities beheaded on Saturday two Saudi men convicted of killing a Chinese man in Riyadh. An Interior Ministry statement said that Faisal bin Fahd and Bandar bin Abdullah first stole the Chinese man's laptop bag while he was walking. When the man tried to catch up with them, he fell and died after hitting his head on the pavement. The statement said that the beheadings were Friday. 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.
