Public execution in Saudi Arabia.
Hundreds of people are executed in Saudi Arabia every year — because some executions are carried out in secret, no one knows the real numbers. In 2007, the newspaper Arab News reported that 400 people remained on death row in the province of Makka alone. There are 12 other regions in the kingdom, so the total number of people awaiting execution could easily reach several thousand. 

This massacre proves, once again, that Western governments never miss an opportunity to tell Saudi people: “We couldn’t care less about your problems.” Even the U.N. High Commissioner’s office — which called on governments around the world to halt the executions of prisoners — refused to make any public pleas on behalf of these young men before the executions.
