DUBAI: Dubai has executed a 50-year-old Jordanian man convicted of kidnapping, raping and killing an 8-year-old boy. The government-run Dubai Media Office announced the execution on Thursday of Nidal Eisa Abdullah.
It says Abdullah’s execution came after Dubai’s Court of Cassation, the emirate’s highest court, rejected his appeal and upheld his death sentence. Abdullah kidnapped 8-year-old Obaida Ibrahim Sidgi Abdul Hadi from a workshop in the neighboring emirate of Sharjah in May 2016. (AP)
