Saudi Arabia on Saturday executed three soldiers who were sentenced for "high treason" and "cooperating with the enemy", a statement from the kingdom's defence ministry said.

It said that the three had been sentenced to death by a specialist court after a fair trial.

The ministry did not name the alleged "enemy" but the executions were carried out in the southern province bordering Yemen where Saudi Arabia has been at war for more than six years against the Iran-aligned Houthi movement.
