Myanmar woman screams innocence before Saudi beheading: video
A Myanmar woman beheaded in a Saudi street this week for killing her husband's young daughter is seen screaming her innocence in a video posted on the Internet Saturday.
The official Saudi Press Agency said Monday that Layla bint Abdul Mutaleb Bassim was executed in the Muslim holy city of Mecca for killing her husband's six-year-old daughter.
Bassim was one of 10 people beheaded so far this year under the kingdom's strict version of Islamic sharia law.
Saudi Arabia executed 87 people last year, up from 78 in 2013, according to an AFP tally. The kingdom had the third-highest number of recorded executions in 2013, behind Iran and Iraq, Amnesty International says.
