Saudi Arabia on Wednesday executed a Pakistani national after finding him guilty of smuggling heroin into the conservative country.

The Interior Ministry said in a statement that the case had brought the total number of people executed in the country this year to 83, according to Saudi's official news agency.

London-based rights watchdog Amnesty International has said that, in 2014, Saudi Arabia – along with Iran, Iraq and the U.S. – had one of the world's highest rates for capital punishment.
