Saudi Arabia ‘to behead more than 50 men’ ... including six considered to-be political activists

International News Report UK: 

"(James Lynch, Deputy Director of the MENA Programme at  Amnesty International, said. Among those who are at imminent risk of execution are these six Shi’a Muslim activists who were clearly convicted in unfair trials. It is clear that the Saudi Arabian authorities are using the guise of counter-terrorism to settle political scores. Three of those six activists were sentenced for ‘crimes’ committed while they were children and have said that they were tortured to confess. Given what we know about the deep flaws in the Saudi Arabian criminal justice system, we have serious concerns about the fairness of death penalty trials in the country.)"   ’
