It doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's for good reason.
Saudi Arabia executed Prince Turki bin Saud bin Turki in Saud Al-Kabeer after he was found guilty of murder the Saudi Interior Ministry said in a statement.
Al-Kabeer was found guilty of being involved in the shooting death of a Saudi national during a group quarrel. The guilty verdict was supported by an appeals court and the Supreme Court of Saudi Arabia, reports CNN.
The family of the man killed reportedly refused blood money, instead demanding justice be done.
This is the first time a member of the Saudi royal family has been executed since 1975, when Prince Faisal bin Musaid was beheaded for assassinating King Faisal.
A few people online noted this wasn't a super prominent member of the Saudi royal family.
The government ... is keen to keep order, stabilize security and bring about justice through implementing the rules prescribed by Allah.
