A Saudi court has sentenced four people to death for alleged links to the Kingdom’s archrival Iran.
State media reported on Thursday that the four were guilty of conspiring to kill “prominent figures” in the predominantly Sunni Gulf nation.
“The criminal court has sentenced four terrorists to death for forming a cell for Iran,” the state-owned al-Ekhbariya TV said.
“The terrorists were trained in camps in Iran” and “planned to assassinate prominent figures,” it added.
According to government-affiliated media, the four “trainees” traveled to Iran through a tourism office and received training from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
