The Iranian police executes two men in public – they scream “we are innocent – the police have set this up”!
Fortunately did the hanging not succeed!
Capital punishment is currently past in half the world’s countries. Nevertheless, the number of executions increased in 2013!
A small group of countries, particularly Iran and Iraq, is behind the rise, says Amnesty International in its annual report on the death penalty takes stock of how often the nations of the world provides that a life must cease. Together conducted 22 countries in 2013 executions of at least 778 people.
That is 100 more than the previous year and thus a step back for opponents of “the ultimate punishment”.
Iran and Iraq accounts – if one disregards China – the majority of the world’s executions.
