Iranian Sunni clerics slam execution of Saudi citizens

Iranian Sunni clerics slam execution of Saudi citizens
IRAN  - A number of Iranian Sunni clerics on Saturday wrote a letter to the UN secretary general and condemned the execution of Saudi citizens under the pretext of terrorist activities.


Two hundred Iranian Sunni clerics in a letter to the UN Secretary General António Guterres urged this international body to adopt a critical stance against executions in Saudi Arabia.

In their letter, the Sunni clerics questioned Saudi ruling monarchy's claims about the role of executed people in terrorist groups.

The clerics referred to criminal murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi and Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr and said that if the UN has paid enough attention to the previous Saudi crimes, they will not dare to commit new executions.

Saudi Arabia beheaded 37 Saudi citizens, most of them minority Shias, in a mass execution across the country for alleged terrorism-related crimes.
