China should hang its head in shame...

- China executed 1,718 people in 2008, according to Amnesty International.

- Last year 72% of the world's total executions took place in China, the charity estimates.

- It applies to 60 offences, including non-violent crimes such as tax fraud and embezzlement.

- Those sentenced to death are usually shot, but some provinces are introducing lethal injections.

There is NO excuse for State Killing, none.
