Saudi authorities on Sunday executed three Iranian men after they were convicted of trying to smuggle a large quantity of drugs into the Gulf Kingdom.

Nabi Baksh, Mohammd Balouh and Omeed Bouledah were executed in the Eastern Saudi port of Dammam, Sabq newspaper said.

Saudi coast guard patrols had arrested the three when they caught them trying to smuggle a large quantity of hashish in their wooden boat in Saudi waters.
