Jordan hangs 11 men after eight-year death penalty moratorium

Jordan executed 11 men convicted of murder by hanging on Sunday, the interior ministry said, as it ended an informal eight-year moratorium on the death penaltyHuman rights groups took Jordan to task on Sunday as the country ended an eight-year moratorium on the death penalty by hanging 11 men convicted of murder. Jordan’s last previous executions were in June 2006, and 122 people have since been sentenced to death. Interior Minister Hussein Majali had suggested recently that the moratorium might end, saying there was a “major debate” in Jordan on the death penalty and that “the public believes that the rise in crime has been the result of the non-application” of capital punishment.
