Saudi Arabia executed a Saudi national on Monday (May 13) after finding him guilty of threatening national security by financing and helping terrorists.

Saudi national Hassan bin Ahmed bin Mansour Al Nasser was charged with helping terrorists carry out deadly attacks at police stations, patrols and security stations and financing them.

A Saudi court found Al Nasser guilty of all charges. His death sentence was carried out on Monday, the Ministry of Interior of Saudi Arabia announced.

In a statement, the Ministry of Interior stressed on the Saudi government’s keenness in “establishing security, achieving justice, and implementing the provisions of Islamic Sharia with regard to anyone who attacks innocent people or sheds their blood, and violates their right to life”.

In January, Saudi Arabia also executed another national who was convicted of terrorist acts.
