Saudi authorities on Tuesday beheaded a man convicted of incest in the south of the medieval kingdom, the interior ministry said.
Hasan Ghazwani, a Saudi national, was executed in the city of Jizan, the ministry said in a statement carried by SPA state news agency.
It said Ghazwani’s affair had led to a pregnancy but did not disclose their family relationship or whether the woman had delivered.
It cited a saying attributed to Prophet Mohammad that stipulates death for whose who commit incest.
