Some 5,000 world executions in 2011, down 1,000 on the year


Rome, November 27 - Roughly 5,000 people were
executed in the world last year, 1,000 fewer than in 2010,
according to data released Tuesday.
The figures were presented at the 7th International
Congress of Justice Ministers in Rome, where the theme was
Towards a World Without the Death Penalty, organized by the
Italian Catholic lay activist and conflict-mediation group
Comunita' di Sant'Egidio.
The meeting also marked the establishment of the
International Day of Cities for Life, which honors places that
have abolished the death penalty, held on November 30, the day
the Grand Duchy of Tuscany became the first European state to
outlaw the practice in 1786.
