Distant supervision has advantages of generating training data automatically for relation extraction by aligning triples in Knowledge Graphs with large-scale corpora. Some recent methods attempt to incorporate extra information to enhance the performance of relation extraction. However, there still exist two major limitations. Firstly, these methods are tailored for a specific type of information which is not enough to cover most of the cases. Secondly, the introduced extra information may contain noise. To address these issues, we propose a novel hybrid graph model, which can incorporate heterogeneous background information in a unified framework, such as entity types and human-constructed triples. These various kinds of knowledge can be integrated efficiently even with several missing cases. In addition, we further employ an attention mechanism to identify the most confident information which can alleviate the side effect of noise. Experimental results demonstrate that our model outperforms the state-of-the-art methods significantly in various evaluation metrics.
