Paedophile killer executed in Yemeni public square

A Yemeni man has been executed in a public square for the rape and murder of a four-year-old girl in the country’s rebel-controlled capital Sanaa.

Hussein al-Saket, 22, was shot five times before his body was strung from a crane in front of a large crowd in Sanaa.

This is the second such public execution in less than a month, seen as a display of power by the Shiite rebel group that has been in control of the city since the 2014 military coup
