International rights groups and organizations, including Amnesty International, have lambasted Saudi Arabia for executing a Shia youth over alleged participation in peaceful protests against the regime in Riyadh when he was a minor.

Saudi authorities handed down death sentence on Tuesday to Mustafa bin Hashem bin Issa Al Darwish, a youth from the kingdom’s Shia-​majority Qatif region in the Eastern Province.
