A Nigerian woman is among four people executed on Monday in Saudi Arabia for drug trafficking offence.
Local media in Saudi Arabia report that three other men were also executed for the same offence.
Two Pakistani men, a Yemeni man and the Nigerian woman were all put to death in the holy city of Mecca.
No other detail of this woman was given by the Saudi authorities.
The official Saudi Press Agency quotes a statement from the interior ministry confirming the executions.
Mostly people are executed for offences such as crime, terrorism, murder, rape, armed robbery and drug trafficking.
Just this year 53 people per official data from the Saudi media have been executed in the kingdom.
Last year 120 people were executed for various offences.
That makes Saudi Arabia one of the world’s leaders in human execution.
The Saudi government has always defended the death penalty, saying it is a good deterrent for crime.
Human rights groups have always condemned Saudi Arabia for its human rights records.
Concerns have also been raised about the fairness of trials in the kingdom.
Trials in Saudi Arabia are carried out under a strict form of Islamic law.
In 2016 another Nigerian man was hanged for drug trafficking offences in Singapore.
