Saudi Arabia Beheads Pakistani, Iraqi Men

Jan 1, 6:31 AM (ET)

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - Two men, a Pakistani and an Iraqi, were beheaded Saturday for smuggling drugs into Saudi Arabia, the Saudi Interior Ministry announced.

The Pakistani, Mohammed Amin Abdullah Jan, was convicted of smuggling an undisclosed amount of heroin into the kingdom and was beheaded in the Red Sea port city of Jiddah, the ministry statement said.

Mattar bin Hussein bin Bakhit al-Khazaali, an Iraqi, was convicted of smuggling hashish into the kingdom and was beheaded in the northern town of Arar, close to the Iraqi border, according to the ministry.

Al-Khazaali is the second Iraqi to be executed in this border town in the past 10 days. Qaied bin Kamal bin Mohammed al-Zayadi, an Iraqi, was convicted of smuggling an undisclosed quantity of hashish into the kingdom and was beheaded in Arar on Dec. 22.

At least 35 people were beheaded in the kingdom in 2004 compared with 52 people in 2003, most of whom were convicted of drug smuggling.

Saudi Arabia follows a strict interpretation of Islam under which people convicted of drug trafficking, murder, rape and armed robbery can be executed. Beheadings are carried out with a sword in public.

The Saudis really seem to make examples of a few individuals they do catch with drugs, but they only have 110 prisoners per 100,000, versus the US, who has prison sentences for mostly everything, with 686 per 100,000. Just thought it was interesting that one of the most oppressive governments has a prison rate 6 times lower than the US, eh? Perhaps we should follow their lead, or perhaps Saudi cops are just easily bribed/ more apathetic, as rumors say.
