A Saudi court sentenced a Yemeni man to death Sunday for a knife attack on a Spanish theater group, state television said.

The court also sentenced an accomplice to 12 and a half years in jail for the Nov. 11 attack during a live performance here, which state media linked to militant group Al-Qaeda.

“The criminal court issues a preliminary ruling handing the death sentence to the perpetrator of the terrorist attack… in Riyadh,” Al-Ekhbariya television reported.
