Chop-Chop Square

Deera Square is a public space in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in which public executions (usually by beheading) take place. It is sometimes known as Justice Square or Chop Chop Square.[1]

After Friday prayers, police and other officials clear the area to make way for the execution to take place. After the beheading of the condemned, the body is wrapped up for the final rites and taken away.
