A Saudi man convicted of killing a compatriot is fifth person to be executed in the strict kingdom so far this year
The execution of a Saudi man on Monday brings the total number of people put to death in the kingdom so far this year to five.
The Interior Ministry said the Saudi man, Ali Al Faraj, shot dead Khaled Al Baden, also from the kingdom, during a dispute.
He was executed in the eastern city of Qatif.
Executions are common in the strict Muslim society, with beheading the most common method.
There were more than 70 official executions in the kingdom last year, according to AFP.
