Authorities in Kuwait on Monday hanged three convicted murderers in the first executions in the Gulf state since May 2007, the ministry of justice said.
The men, a Pakistani, a Saudi and a stateless Arab, were hanged at the central jail, west of the capital Kuwait City, in front of judicial and security officials, the ministry said.
The Pakistani was convicted of killing a Kuwaiti couple and the Saudi of murdering a compatriot.
The stateless Arab was hanged for killing his wife and five children after claiming he was a long-awaited imam.
