Saudi Arabia has executed 47 people on charges of terrorism and opposition to the regime. Among them were four Shia dissidents including top cleric Ayatollah Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr. Many analysts believe that the executions, at a time when the Saudis are sinking in the quagmire of Yemen's war, are a further proof of the kingdom’s weakness.
