Kuwait executes seven, including two women

Kuwaiti authorities have carried out the death sentence on seven people convicted of murder, including two women, in the first executions in the Gulf country since 2017.

Prosecutors said the executions were carried out by hanging after the death sentences were approved by Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Nawaf.

An Ethiopian woman and a Kuwaiti woman were hanged on Wednesday, along with five men — three Kuwaitis, a Syrian and a Pakistani.
