RIYADH - Saudi Arabia executed four people from the same family Monday for attempting to smuggle "large quantities" of hashish into the kingdom, officials and a rights group said.


The Interior Ministry said they were executed in southern Najran province near Yemen after they were found guilty by three courts, including an appeals court.


An Associated Press tally shows their deaths bring to 32 the number of people executed this year in the kingdom.
