Saudi condemns second Shiite protester to death

Members of the Saudi special police unit perform during a parade in Mecca, on October 9, 2013A Saudi court sentenced to death a Shiite protester convicted of attacking police forces during unrest in the east, local media reported Wednesday, in the second such ruling this week. Scores of Shiites are on trial in Saudi Arabia after they were detained for involvement in anti-regime protests staged in the oil-rich Eastern Province since February 2011. Activists identified the defendant as Ali Mohammed Baqir al-Nimr, a 20-year-old detained since “nearly 30 months.” Demonstrations in Eastern Province, where most of the kingdom’s two million Shiites live, erupted in 2011 alongside a Shiite-led protest movement in neighbouring Bahrain.
