A dramatic increase in executions in Saudi Arabia this year has alarmed human rights groups and refocused international attention on the kingdom's controversial judicial system. Estimates by human rights groups that closely monitor events there place the total between 90 and 100 through May 2. London-based Amnesty International said that figure exceeds the 53 executions known to have been carried out in 1994 and the 88 recorded in 1993, which also prompted complaints by human rights advocates.
