Sat May 24, 7:23 AM ET

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - Saudi Arabia's Interior Ministry says authorities have beheaded a local man convicted of armed robbery and raping a woman.

Mohammed al-Doussari was arrested after robbing several houses at gunpoint and, in one case, raping a woman.

Saudi Arabia follows a strict interpretation of Islam under which people convicted of murder, drug trafficking, rape and armed robbery can be executed.

Saturday's execution brings the number of people beheaded this year to 55, according to an Associated Press count.

Saudi Arabia beheaded 137 people last year, up sharply from the 38 executed in 2006.
