Saudi regime carries out 86th beheading in 2016
Saudi Arabia has decapitated a Pakistani national after sentencing him to death for smuggling drugs, bringing to 86 the number of such executions in the kingdom since the start of this year.

The convicted Pakistani man, identified as Shah Zaman Khan Sayyed, was beheaded in the Riyadh region, the Saudi Interior Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

The man was found guilty of attempting to smuggle heroin and amphetamines into the kingdom, the interior ministry added.

Beheading with a sword is the most common form of execution in Saudi Arabia. Saudi officials execute convicts by sword and then dangle their corpses from a helicopter for the public to see.

Saudis closer to $10-billion loan as budget deficit widens

Addressing huge budget shortfalls following a slump in oil prices, Saudi Arabia is making a return back to global credit markets after a 25-year hiatus. The cash-strapped kingdom is about to secure a five-year $10-billion loan from international banks.

The Saudi Finance Ministry was initially seeking a loan between $6 billion and $8 billion, but it increased the amount after receiving a strong demand from a number of global banks, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

The lead arrangers of the Saudi loan -- expected to be finalized by the end of the month -- include JP Morgan, HSBC, and Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, each of which will contribute about $1.3 billion with the rest of the amount to be presented by various other banks.

The kingdom is facing a budget deficit of nearly $100 billion caused by a sharp fall in oil prices as well as Riyadh’s rising army expenditure, a large amount of which is being funneled into a military campaign against Yemen where at least 9,400 people have been killed and over 16,000 injured.
