Saudi Arabia on Thursday executed a Yemeni man convicted over a knife attack on a Spanish theatre group, the interior ministry said, amid a controversial push to ease decades-old restrictions on entertainment.

The man, identified as Imad al-Mansouri, had been sentenced to death for the November 11 attack during a live performance in Riyadh, which state media linked to militant group Al-Qaeda and which Madrid said left four performers wounded.
