Eight citizens of Hong Kong were executed in Kuala Lumpur for drug trafficking. Authorities rejected appeals from British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the human rights group Amnesty International. The eight were convicted in 1985 of smuggling 28 pounds of heroin. Under Malaysia's 1975 law dictating a mandatory death sentence for drug trafficking, 92 people have been hanged. Under the law, no proof of an actual drug sale is required.
