An Indonesian housemaid has been executed in Saudi Arabia after being convicted of killing her employer, the Saudi interior ministry has said.
The woman was beheaded in the southern Asir province, in what was the second execution in the country in 2008.
The maid was earlier found guilty of suffocating her female boss and stealing her jewellery.
Rape, murder and other serious crimes can carry the death penalty in the conservative desert kingdom.
Beheadings usually take place in public.
