Eight Bangladeshi migrants have been beheaded in the Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh.

The eight had been executed in public on Friday.

They were sentenced to death for the alleged murder of an Egyptian man in April, 2007, an interior ministry statement said on Friday.

They are Mamun Abdul Mannan, Faruq Jamal, Sumon Miah, Mohammed Sumon, Shafiq al-Islam, Masud Shamsul Haque, Abu al-Hussain Ahmed, Mutir al-Rahman.

The men were convicted of robbing a warehouse and killing the security guard, Hussein Saeed Mohammed Abdulkhaleq, an Egyptian national.

Three other men were sentenced to various prison terms, the statement in Arabic said.

Human rights group Amnesty International condemned the execution in a statement, also on Friday.

“Court proceedings in Saudi Arabia fall far short of international standards for fair trial and news of these recent multiple executions is deeply disturbing,” the group’s Middle East and North Africa director, Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, said.

“The Saudi authorities appear to have increased the number of executions in recent months, a move that puts the country at odds with the worldwide trend against the death penalty,” he added.
