Saudi authorities on Sunday beheaded a Saudi man who was convicted of fatally shooting a compatriot after a dispute, the Interior Ministry said. Ahmed bin Tayer al-Issa killed Faye bin Ahmed al-Shadidi by a single shot from his gun, according to a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency. The statement did not mention the reason behind the dispute. Sunday's execution brought to 117 the number of people beheaded in the kingdom this year, according to a count by The Associated Press. Saudi Arabia beheaded 38 people last year and 83 people in 2005.
