Yet another Pak with no place for his turban
A PAKISTANI drug trafficker was beheaded in Saudi Arabia, a Ministry of Interior statement said. Moataber bin Khan was convicted of smuggling an undisclosed amount of heroin into the kingdom. He was beheaded in the Red Sea port city of Jiddah, bringing the total number of beheadings this year to 48. Last year, at least 49 people were beheaded in the kingdom. Drugs like heroin regularly enter Saudi Arabia from Pakistan, which lies along a route for smuggling narcotics to the Middle East and Europe.
