An Indian worker, convicted of murdering his Saudi sponsor, has been executed in the Gulf kingdom.

Muhammad Latif was beheaded on Thursday after being found guilty by a local court of killing his sponsor Dhafir Al-Dossari by hitting him with an iron rod during a dispute, according to the Interior Ministry.

He then hid the body in an abandoned well, the Ministry was quoted as saying by state-run SPA news agency.

The court had earlier postponed the execution until the minor sons of the sponsor are old enough to agree to the verdict.
