How many of us do our governments kill?* - Truthloader

09/04/2014 22:19

Recently, Amnesty International published its annual report into the number of judicial executions carried out around the world. In 2013 there were at least 22 countries that carried out the death sentence with the US, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and China topping the league table of killers. The total people killed does not even include extra-judicial killings in places like Syria, where pro-government and opposition groups are both responsible for a huge number of people killed during the last year. Nor does it include the secret killings, which happen in many countries across the world, especially in China, where death sentences and executions are a closely guarded state secret. So how many people did our governments kill in judicial executions in 2013?
