UN and other rights groups condemn Saudi execution of 37 prisoners

The UN has condemned the execution of 37 Saudi nationals across the kingdom this week, saying most were minority Shia Muslims who may not have had fair trials. Saudi Arabia said on Tuesday it had carried out the executions over terrorism crimes. Amnesty said the kingdom has stepped up the rate of executions in 2019, with at least 104 people put to death compared to 149 for the whole of 2018.
