A man who killed a boy in a mosque has been executed by firing squad in Dubai

A man who killed a four-year-old boy in a mosque has been executed by firing squad in Dubai.

It is the first execution in the United Arab Emirates in three years.

Mukhthiar Ahmed Khudabakhsh, the boy’s father, said the sentence was carried out on Thursday at a shooting range.

The boy’s parents were among five family members present for the execution of Rashid Rabee al-Rashidi, a 30-year-old boat captain convicted of raping and killing the boy Moosa in a mosque bathroom in November 2009.
