Barbaric crucifixions are on the rise in Saudi Arabia with 134 people executed already this year.
A death penalty watchdog has revealed 'alarming' rise in state executions in the country - including crucifixions. A report claims more than 130 people have been executed this year already - with at least 24 more at "imminent" risk of execution, including three children.
The skyrocketing number reportedly included at least six teens executed this year for "crimes" they were accused of carrying out as children. And the surge has come despite a pledge from Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince to reduce the use of the death penalty amid international disgust.
