A Saudi citizen convicted of murder was beheaded on Sunday, the interior ministry announced, bringing the number of executions in the kingdom this year to 10.
Salem al-Jahdali beat fellow tribesman Abdullah al-Jahdali to death following a dispute, the ministry said in a statement published by the official SPA news agency.
The execution took place in the holy western city of Mecca.
The ultra-conservative kingdom beheaded 78 people in 2013, according to an AFP count.
