The UN lead country on human rights is beheading people left and right:
Rare footage of a brutal beheading may be seen at the bottom of the article.
Rare footage emerged on Saturday of authorities in Saudi Arabia publicly beheading three men.
A 50-second video was uploaded to YouTube by Germany-based Saudi activist Ali Dubaisy, who told Middle East Eye he had obtained it from sources inside the kingdom.
Dubaisy said a tourist in the Red Sea city of Jeddah filmed the footage on a mobile phone, adding that it is rare to obtain such footage as it is illegal to film executions.
A man was arrested in January after filming the public beheading of a woman in Mecca.
Dubaisy said he is not aware when the execution of the three men took place but he said it was “recently”. The men’s identity and the reason for their execution is not known.
The video begins with the three men shown blindfolded and kneeling on the side of a public street.
Three uniformed police officers are stood behind the men.
A group of Saudi officials wearing traditional dress are gathered nearby, one of who is carrying a long curved silver sword.
In the video people can be heard chattering in the background, from among the group of tourists who are on a bus with the person filming.
There is a group of around 30 men gathered outside the bus, facing the square, watching the men about to be beheaded.
The executioner walks up to the first man, women are heard screaming in the background, and he raises his sword in the air.
The executioner swings the sword down with such force that the kneeling man’s head is completely severed.
