Saudis execute three for homosexual acts

The Saudi authorities have executed three Yemeni men convicted of homosexual acts.

The three -- who were put to death in the south-western city of Jizan, near the border with Yemen -- were also found guilty of sexually molesting young boys.

Around seventy people have been executed so far this year in Saudi Arabia.
