Swiss Summon Over Saudi Mass Execution

Swiss Summon Over Saudi Mass Execution

Switzerland’s Foreign Ministry has said that it summoned the Saudi charge d’affaires to reiterate its opposition to the death penalty in all circumstances after a mass execution in the kingdom
The Swiss ministry, in a statement on Monday, said “these mass executions risk reviving the confessional tensions which have already caused far too many victims in this region of the world,” AP reported.
It stressed the importance of doing everything to lower those tensions and “avoid provocations”. The Swiss move comes after Saudi Arabia on Saturday executed Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr and 46 others.
