The UNHRC Chief Michelle Bachelet has called Saudi Arabia's mass execution of 37 men including three minors as shocking and abhorrent.  

The men had been convicted of terrorism-related crimes. 

The Chief's office said today the beheading in six cities across Saudi Arabia were carried out on Tuesday despite repeated warnings from rights officials about lack of due process. 

She urged Saudi Arabia to review its counter-terror legislation and expressly prohibit the death penalty for minors and halt pending executions.
