, how much do you know about the death penalty?
How many people do you think were executed in 2016?
Georgia, last year at least 2,032 were executed in 23 countries around the world. The real figure is likely higher because China keeps its execution numbers a secret.
So-called ‘crimes’ punishable by execution include homosexuality, adultery, blasphemy and political dissent.
Children as young as nine can be sentenced to death.
So long as the death penalty exists, innocent people will be put to death.
Ali al-Nimr was 17 years old when he was sentenced to death by Saudi Arabian authorities. His 'crimes' included allegedly participating in a pro-democracy demonstration and "explaining how to give first aid to protesters".
He could now be "crucified" (beheaded and his body put on public display) at any moment.
Reprieve is campaigning to spare his life. , please sign our petition to save Ali al-Nimr:
