Saudi authorities beheaded an Indian man convicted of drug smuggling.
The statement, carried by the Saudi Press Agency, said Abu Bakr al-Anfal was found guilty of bringing heroin into the kingdom. He was executed in the capital Riyadh.
Saudi Arabia follows a strict interpretation of Islam under which people convicted of murder, drug trafficking, rape and armed robbery can be executed. Beheadings are carried out with a sword in a public square.
Tuesday's executions brought to 67 the number of people, including two women, beheaded in the kingdom this year. The kingdom beheaded 38 people last year and 83 people in 2005.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
