Adjust font size:

Two convicts have been executed for drug trafficking in southwest China's Yunnan province, according to local sources on Sunday.

Wang Zuguang and Xu Lianke were sentenced to death earlier for trafficking 433.95 kilograms of heroin by the Intermediate People's Court of Pu'er while their accessary Hu Yuguang received death penalty with two-year reprieve.

The court heard that Wang sent Hu to receive 77 kg of heroin from Thailand in October and November 2001.

In 2002, Xu was caught when transporting 356.95 kg of heroin sealed in 13 timbers from Myanmar to south China's Guangdong and Hong Kong. Wang and Hu were arrested while receiving the drugs and delivering messages.
