Saudi Arabia started the year off with a bang. They executed eight murderers, seven druggies, one rapist and one practitioner of incest for a grand total of 17. Along with this they also got a new king.
In case you are interested, all of the kings of the Kingdom Saudi Arabia have been the sons of the original ibn Saud. He took over 20 wives as part of his plan to unify the tribes. They gave him over 100 children and his sons are still ruling the county.
