Clinton: Saudi executions will enflame region

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

Hillary Clinton is denouncing the mass execution of 47 men by Saudi Arabia on Saturday.

The former secretary of state says the killings, which included the execution of a prominent Shiite Muslim cleric, "will inflame the region even more."

The majority of Muslims in Saudi Arabia are Sunni.

The Democratic presidential front-runner says the U.S. must raise some "serious questions" with the Saudi monarchy.

Clinton joins other international officials, including the White House, in criticizing the kingdom.
