Kuwait has hanged seven prisoners, including a royal family member as part of a mass execution after he was found guilty of murdering a fellow prince, according to a statement carried by the state-run KUNA news agency.

The hangings on Wednesday were the first executions since mid-2013.

Faisal Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, who killed his nephew Basil Al-Sabah in 2010, was among seven people to face their fate today having been sentenced to death.  Basil had been shot several times from close range and was declared dead at Mubarak Al Kabeer Hospital.

Those executed included two Kuwaitis, two Egyptians, a Bangladeshi, a Filipina and an Ethiopian. They were convicted of offences ranging from murder, attempted murder, kidnapping and rape.

Nusra al-Enezi, the other Kuwaiti, was convicted of setting fire to a tent in 2009 during a wedding party for her husband, killing around 57 people, including women and children. It was an apparent act of revenge against her husband for taking a second wife.

The Filipina and Ethiopian women were domestic helpers convicted of murdering members of their employers’ families in two unrelated crimes.

The two Egyptians were convicted of premeditated murders, while the Bangladeshi was convicted of abduction and rape.

In the Philippines, authorities had earlier identified the Filipina hanged as Jakatia Pawa, who was convicted of killing her employer’s 22-year old daughter in 2007.
