Saudi beheads 3 for drug trafficking


Saudi Arabia on Wednesday beheaded three people convicted of smuggling narcotics into the kingdom, the interior ministry said.

Hammud Hajuri from Yemen and Mohammed Al Qahtani, a Saudi, were executed in southwestern Jizan province, near the Yemeni border, after being found guilty of trafficking a large amount of amphetamines and hashish, it said in a statement carried by the SPA state news agency.

The ministry said a Syrian, Fadi Abdulrazzaq, was executed in the northern province of Jawf after having been convicted of smuggling amphetamines.
