Michelle Bachelet said war crimes may have been committed if people were beheaded following court cases that do not offer proper fair trial guarantees.

"I condemn Saudi Arabia's mass execution on Saturday of 81 people on terrorism-related charges," Ms Bachelet said in a statement. "I am also concerned that some of the executions appear to be linked to the ongoing armed conflict in Yemen.
