- Saudi Arabia is on course to set a new record for beheading or crucifying people in 2019.
- 43 people were killed within the first three months of 2019. If this rate is maintained, the total for 2019 will be 172, a record.
- Since numbers started being accurately documented by rights groups in the early 2000s the figures have trended upwards.
- Saudi Arabia remains third, behind China and Iran, in the number of executions per year.
