FUZHOU, June 25 (Xinhua) -- Two men were executed in east China's Fujian Province for trafficking methamphetamine and heroin, the Fujian Provincial Higher People's Court said Tuesday.

Yang Jiande and Yuan Tingchang were executed on Tuesday after the Supreme People's Court approved their death sentences, according to the local court.

Yang was convicted of hiring people to transport nearly 4.9 kg of methamphetamine in China between April and September 2010. He was also convicted of illegally possessing five guns, according to the court.

Yuan was convicted of purchasing and selling 1.78 kg heroin in Guangzhou, capital of south China's Guangdong Province, between February and July 2010.

All property of the two convicted was confiscated.

Separately, another man in east China's Zhejiang Province was also executed for drug trafficking on Tuesday after the Supreme People's Court approved his death sentence, according to the Intermediate People's Court of Wenzhou City.

The man surnamed Chen was found guilty of buying 3 kg of methamphetamine in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, in 2011, then transporting it in shoe boxes and selling it in Wenzhou.

The Intermediate People's Court of Wenzhou City also handed down two verdicts in two other separate cases, sentencing a 49-year-old man surnamed Luo and a 32-year-old man surnamed Wei to death for trafficking methamphetamine and heroin in 2012.

Drug trafficking is a felony in China.
