Saudi Arabia has executed 12 people in 10 days for drug offences after a two-year hiatus, according to a human rights organization.



The spate of executions - most of which are beheadings with a sword - is part of a wider trend that suggests the country is on track for a record year of executions despite Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman previously vowing to reduce the use of such punishments.

The defendants, all males, were sentenced to death after being imprisoned on non-violent drug charges. Three were Pakistani, four Syrian, two Jordanian and three Saudi. Another man from Jordan is believed to have been transferred to the wing for executions on Friday.

That brings the total number of people executed this year to at least 132, exceeding those of 2020 and 2021 combined.

Three death row prisoners executed over two days in the US


Three men have been executed in the past two days in the US, one each in Texas, Arizona and Oklahoma. All died by lethal injection. From their convictions to their executions, the condemned men combined spent over a century on death row. This killing spree brings the number of death row inmates executed in 2022 to 16.

>>>The three executions in America came in the same week that the emirate of Kuwait put seven people to death in a mass execution, despite appeals from human rights organizations for clemency.

The prisoners hanged on Wednesday were four Kuwaitis, a Pakistani, a Syrian and an Ethiopian. Two of the seven were women. Kuwait introduced the death penalty in the mid-1960s and since then has executed dozens of people, mainly those convicted of murder or drug trafficking.

IDK about the Murray Hooper story, but

"Richard Fairchild was convicted of the 1993 killing of his girlfriend's three-year-old son Adam Broomhall. Prosecutors say Fairchild, an ex-Marine, held the child's body against a hot furnace, then threw him onto a table, after the boy wet the bed"

"Stephen Barbee, 57, was convicted and sentenced to death in Texas for the 2005 suffocation deaths of his pregnant ex-girlfriend Lisa Underwood, 34, and her seven-year-old son."

Anything involving abuse and murder of children I'm not losing any sleep over.
