RIYADH (AFP) - Saudi authorities beheaded Monday a Nepali housemaid convicted of murdering a two-year-old boy by slitting his throat, the interior ministry said.

The house maid was found guilty of "slaughtering with a knife" the Saudi toddler Osama bin Maeed al-Enzi, the ministry said in a statement carried by SPA state news agency.

The ministry provided no details about the crime.

The maid's execution in the northern city of Arar brings to 16 the number of death sentences carried out this year in the ultra-conservative kingdom.
