Mohammed Latif was found guilty of having beaten to death his 'sponsor'.

Riyadh: An Indian worker convicted of murdering a Saudi was beheaded by the sword in the Riyadh region Thursday, the interior ministry said.

Mohammed Latif was found guilty of having beaten to death his 'sponsor', Dhafer bin Mohammed al-Dussari, with a sharp object and then dumping his body in a well, it was quoted by state news agency SPA as saying.

 

A system called 'kafala' in Arabic gives local sponsors control over foreign workers in the oil-rich Gulf, often leading to disputes.

Latif's execution was the third carried out this year in Saudi Arabia, which beheaded 78 people in 2013, according to an AFP count.

Rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking are all punishable by death under the conservative kingdom's strict version of Islamic sharia law.
