Scores executed and hundreds await their turn to the gallows

Azzaman, August 30, 2012

Scores of prisoners have been hanged in Iraq among them two Arab nationals, one from Syria and the other from Saudi Arabia, the Justice Ministry said.

In a statement, the ministry said those executed were convicted of “terrorist issues.”

Two batches of convicted prisoners have been sent to the gallows recently, among them three women, according to the statement.

The number of executions is reported to have been the highest in the country in one month since the 2003-U.S. invasion.

In total 47 people have been executed this month.

Hundreds of Iraqis are said to be waiting for their turn to the gallows. Unconfirmed reports say the list of Iraqis who have been sentenced to death for committing ‘acts of terror’ amounts to more than 250 people.
