Kuwait hanged seven people at its central prison on Wednesday, including a prince in the ruling Al-Sabah family.

Axar.az reports citing to KUNA news agency.

It appeared to be the first time a member of the royal family has been put to death in Kuwait, where the emir has ultimate say over affairs of state.

Sheikh Faisal Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah was sentenced to death in 2010 for killing his nephew, another prince, according to Kuwaiti newspapers.

Al-Sabah's crime was "premeditated murder and possession of a firearm and ammunition without a license," KUNA added.

Another Kuwaiti man convicted of murder was also executed.

The other four men and one woman also hanged hailed from Bangladesh, Egypt, Ethiopia and the Philippines and were convicted of offences ranging from murder, attempted murder, kidnapping and rape.
