Saudi Arabia beheading nearly two people per week this year | Amnesty International USA

Saudi Arabia killing citizens but this Amnesty International report will get little publicity.
' Saudi Arabia applies the death penalty for a wide range of crimes, including drug offences, apostasy, sorcery and witchcraft. Such offences do not fall into the category of "most serious crimes" embodied in international standards, which require that the scope of crimes punishable by death must be limited to those involving intentional killing.

Offences such as apostasy, sorcery and witchcraft have been used to punish people for the legitimate exercise of their human rights, including the rights to freedom of conscience, religion, belief and expression.'
Where are the cries from The Guardian and BBC? Imagine their outcry if was Israel instead...
