This happened in Saudi Arabia. While they were visiting an alter of the prophet Mohamed of Medina, a woman and her boy were approached by a few people and asked if they areĀ  Shiite Muslims.

The woman answered “yes” and, a few minutes later, the child was taken from the mother and put into a car.

The six years old boy was repeatedly stabbed in the neck until he was decapitated. Everything happened in front of the terrified mother who had no recourse but the scream as loud as she could.

In Saudi Arabia, the predominant branch of the Islam is sunni, representing approximately three quarters of the population. Human rights group say that people of other religions are persecuted.

“There was no intervention from anybody and no reply from the authorities regarding this incident. The community also reported that this incident is the result of on going violences and lack of protection of the Shia population from Saudi Arabia authorities” Shia Rights Watch said in a statement, a group from Washington D.C.

The conflict between Shia Muslims and sunni has been going on for centuries, starting with the death of Prophet Mohamed in the seventh century.
