By Gandhya Senanayake


Sri Lankan maid Rizana Nafeek who was sentenced to death by the Saudi Arabian Supreme Court was executed this afternoon, the External Affairs Ministry stated.

Rizana, who was 24 this year was executed in this manner after several failed pleas for clemency by the Sri Lankan government, including the President and Human Rights organisations .

Nafeek was sentenced to death after being found guilty for the death of a four-month infant in her care when the Otaibi family employed her in 2005.

Rizana Nafeek who was earlier reported to have confessed, retracted the confession stating she had done so under duress. (Ceylon Today Online)
