April 4, 2016: Saudi Arabia executed two citizens for murder, raising to 84 the number of death sentences the kingdom has carried out so far this year.
Baddah al-Dusari was found guilty of killing Saudi national Abdullah al-Qahtani by repeatedly running him over, the interior ministry said in a statement carried by SPA state news agency.
Mansur al-Azuri was convicted of stabbing to death fellow citizen Saad al-Subaiee following a dispute, the ministry said in separate statement.
They were both executed in al-Kharj, near the capital Riyadh.
Most people put to death in Saudi Arabia are beheaded with a sword.
The executions so far this year include 47 for "terrorism" carried out in a single day on January 2.
In 2015, Saudi Arabia executed 153 people, most of them for drug trafficking or murder, according to an AFP count.
