    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- A Saudi drug trafficker was beheaded Sunday, a Ministry of Interior statement said.

    Dhaher bin Thamer al-Shimry was convicted of smuggling marijuana into the kingdom, the statement said.

    Al-Shimry was beheaded in the eastern province of Hafr al-Baten, bringing the number of beheadings in the kingdom this year to 41, most of them drug traffickers. At least 49 people were beheaded last year.

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