Riyadh, Sep 5 (IANS/AKI) Saudi Arabia Tuesday executed a Pakistani national in Medina city for trafficking heroin.

Hayat Sayed Lal Sayed had attempted to smuggle heroin in his stomach, the Saudi interior ministry said in a statement. It said a common method for so-called drug mules to transport narcotics is to swallow condoms containing the substance.

The date and place of Sayed's arrest were not given.

According to Amnesty International, Saudi Arabia is one of the world's most active users of capital punishment. The country executed 79 people last year.

The interior ministry said the death penalty is used to combat drug use which is against Islamic beliefs.
