FUZHOU, June 23 (Xinhua) -- Six drug dealers were executed in southeast China's Fujian Province Wednesday, ahead of Saturday's International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

Zhang Jinxuan, Li Weiliang, Dong Yunshi, guilty of trafficking and transporting drugs, were sentenced to death in June last year, according to Putian City's Intermediate People's Court. They were executed in Putian on Wednesday.

Three other drug dealers, Lu Jianjun, Shi Zhongping and Li Dezhong were executed in Fujian's Quanzhou City.

Lu and Shi were convicted in 2008 of manufacturing and selling heroines from 2006 to 2007, the city court in Quanzhou said.

Li was given death penalty in August last year for selling 25,000 grams of ketamine.

In southwest China's Chongqing Municipality, two dealers were executed Tuesday for cross-border smuggling and dealing of 12,019 grams of heroine and 2,245.5 grams of methamphetamine.
