Saudi Arabia has executed 37 men convicted of terror-related crimes, the kingdom's official news agency said Tuesday.
One of the convicts was crucified, according to an interior ministry statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
"The death penalty was implemented on a number of criminals for adopting extremist terrorist ideologies and forming terrorist cells to corrupt and disrupt security as well as spreading chaos and provoking sectarian strife," SPA said in a tweet.
In recent years, the Crown Prince has ordered the rounding up of scores of activists, high-profile clerics, analysts, businessmen and princes, as well as women's rights defenders who were allegedly tortured and who authorities accuse of "suspicious contact" with foreign entities.
