B7ZNzvCCEAE907ZA Burmese woman was publicly beheaded by authorities in Saudi Arabia Mecca city of Saudi Arabia after she was found guilty of sexual abuse and murder of her seven-year-old step-daughter.

The Burmese woman identified as Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim was residing in Saudi Arabi. Her execution further prompted criticism of Saudi’s human rights record.

A video of her execution which was carried out by a sword was released online on YouTube. The video showed the woman being dragged into what appeared to be a car park, screaming “I did not kill” repeatedly.

Held down by four police officers, she was then beheaded with three blows of a sword. YouTube later removed the video as part of its policy on “shocking and disgusting content”.

A human rights activist Mohammad al-Saeedi said the woman was beheaded without injecting painkillers as the authorities wanted to make the pain more powerful for her.

According to al-Saeedi there are two ways to behead people. “One way is to inject the prisoner with painkillers to numb the pain and the other is without the painkiller,” he told the Middle East Eye.

A statement by the Ministry of Interior of Saudi Arabia said it believed the sentence was warranted due to the severity of the crime.
